Announcing the Trawler Fest in it’s fourth year at Anacortes, Washington! Situated on picturesque Fidalgo Island, the city is the gateway for Washington’s ferry run to the San Juan Islands and Victoria, B.C. Anacortes, commonly referred to as “the drive-to island,” is easily accessible and boasts a beautiful waterfront and marina, a charming downtown center, and a friendly community.
Trawler Fest is the trawler and cruising-under-power event series produced by PassageMaker Magazine. It is all about cruising on motorboats—the boats, the people, and the lifestyle.
The Skagit Valley Tulip Festival….
…is one of the destination events for the Pacific Northwest, held each year from April 1-30.
Every spring hundreds of thousands of people come to enjoy the celebration of spring as millions of tulips burst into bloom. As with all things governed by Mother Nature, the tulips bloom according to their own schedule sometime during the festival. The tulips allow us to share our corner of the world and help us to showcase Skagit Valley agriculture.
