“Do the Bloom” Color Run on Saturday, April 13 starting at 10 a.m. at the Depot Art Center. In its 5th year, this 5k run is loads of fun. Runners become living canvases as our volunteers liberally douse them with colored powder at stations throughout the course. It’s suitable for all ages – and includes an optional 1 mile run for kids. You can register at Active.com or the morning of the run starting at 8:30 am. (I didn’t have a Color Run photo so I went with chalk art “throwback” photo from the 2013 Festival)
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.
