Port of Friday Harbor to Celebrate National Marina Day
The Port of Friday Harbor will participate in this year’s National Marina Day on June 8th with a “Welcome to the Water” Marina Festival. Islanders and visitors are encouraged to discover or be reacquainted with the fun times of the boating lifestyle.
The Port’s festival will be held from 10am to 3pm in the port parking lot and on the docks closest to shore. There will be a seafood chowder cook-off, a marine swap meet, live music and children’s activities. The Port will also have a raffle fundraiser for the Friday Harbor High School Sailing Team and the Friday Harbor Power Squadron will offer free vessel safety inspections.
This is a fantastic opportunity for island citizens and visitors who don’t have a boat to get out on the water for free. There will be free dinghy, kayak, paddle boat and electric Duffy boat rides—all provided by Friday Harbor Marine for this special event. The Port intends to make this waterfront festival an annual occasion, so stop by and get out on the water!
