Crowd pleaser

Published July 6, 2019 / by Steve Berentson

An undeniable crowd favorite among the thousands gathered for the Anacortes Fourth of July parade was this boy behind the wheel of a spunky little electric sports car. The adventurous little driver raced and “drifted” his way up Commercial Avenue with a “pit crew” to change batteries when his ride ran out of juice. Would have made the little pedal car of my childhood look like it was standing still. See more parade photos “In the News.”

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.
