Strawberry Festival Parade July, 2022: the joy on faces — participants and parade-watchers alike — was amazing. Roughly fifty folks turned out in all manner of sea-critter regalia to celebrate and respect our Salish Sea species. The drum line set the tone, creating anticipation and dance rhythms. Jellyfish, squid, bull kelp, crabs, and all matter of fish cavorted behind. Next year? Even cooler!
