Strawberry Festival! 2013

The strawberry festival is this weekend and the Island is pumped.  It's the talk of the water taxi, the ferry, even the Island AM emergency broadcast system has warnings about the ferry schedule and road closures!

We couldn't have much of an event this year- but next year- and subsequent years- we hope to invite people to come over and camp in our yard and enjoy the festivities with us! We want to turn it into a holiday for our family. We shall see....

Anyway, this is our  first festival as Islanders. We came out last year and that was when we officially decided to move here, or rather, that was when we hurried the process.  We are excited to walk in the parade with J's preschool and to ride some rides, eat some carnival food, and in general enjoy the Island community.

If you are looking for information on the strawberry festival the best place to get it is from the Beachcomber insert (Beachcomber is the Island newspaper).  The newspapers are sold all around town-  but also on the ferries and at the end of the North-End pier.  Here is good online information from the Vashon Chamber of Commerce. Here are some reviews on Yelp.

There is an awesome line up of events, music, food, parade and some fun stuff. Oh, and we gotta remember to bring our canned goods- cheaper tickets for rides apparently!

Hope to see you there!
