Harbor Days

This weekend is the Harbor Days Arts & Crafts Fair in Olympia. This is a brand new show to me, so I can't give a personal description of the show. But here's what they say:

33 Years of Tugboats and Maritime Heritage celebrated on the beautiful Olympia, Washington waterfront.

Ahoy! Welcome to Olympia Harbor Days! If you are a tugboat enthusiast, a history buff, an arts & crafts lover, or simply someone in search of lots of fun, mark your calendar for September 1, 2 & 3, 2006.

Harbor Days is an annual festival where tugboats return to the southernmost tip of Puget Sound for three days of entertainment, food, art, history, and a last farewell to the summer. Vintage, working and retired tugboats are moored at Olympia's Percival Landing. Many of them are open for tour on Saturday of the festival. Be on hand at noon Sunday as the tugs leave shore to participate in the Annual Harbor Days Tugboat Races, out in the deep channel of the bay.

Extra attractions include a children's area, model tugboats, and the Lady Washington (star of the Pirates of the Caribbean) & her crew.

Hope you can join us and experience the South Sound's classiest event...with a little something for everyone in the family!
