Small craft sought for Wharf Fest ‘09

The third annual Wharf Fest returns to the historic Coupeville Waterfront on June 27 and 28.

This year’s theme celebrates small boats. Kayaks, canoes, rowboats, small sailboats, model boats, and other, small craft are welcome to join the festivities. The object is to assemble as many small craft as possible, in the water, or on land for display. Launching facilities are nearby, and moorage is available at the historic 1905 Coupeville Wharf, where kayak rentals are also available. At 2 p.m., a small boat flotilla will be assembled and paraders will pass by the wharf for photo ops.

Wharf Fest is an all-free, family-fun festival, sponsored by the Coupeville Historic Waterfront Association, and features music, kids activities, hayrides, vintage boats and vehicles, and Pirates! The Island County Historical Museum will be open by donation during Wharf Fest, and will feature a special maritime exhibit.

Bring your boat and have a ball. Call if you’d like to join the Wharf Fest Small Boat Flotilla, or for more information, 678-3310.
