Anacortes celebrates America!

Published July 5, 2019 / by Steve Berentson

It was another great Independence Day celebration in Anacortes Thursday, with dozens of colorful parade entries including this unit sponsored by the Anacortes Yacht Club. “Rock the Dock” and a community fireworks show on the Fidalgo Bay shoreline wrapped up a day chock full of public events. Thanks to all who make these celebration opportunities a reality!

About Steve Berentson
A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
