Gig Harbor kicked off summer over the weekend with its annual Maritime Gig Festival. The weather couldn't have been better!
Besides the big parade on Saturday, which I missed, there was the traditional Blessing of the Fleet on Sunday. All manner of watercraft crammed into the harbor to be blessed by a priest in the boat above. Horns bellowed and people cheered as his boat tootled around the harbor.
Besides the action on the water, there was a classic car show lining the closed-off main street through town.
Stand-up paddle boards were on display waiting to be purchased for summer fun:
Kayaks also were ready to go:
And let's not forget the food! We started at the Trolley, with picnic table seating and a lobster roll for Dave and blackened chicken taco for me. We ended at a patio table at Seven Seas Brewery.
I love this display outside a clothing store.
The hat says "Vitamin sea."
Gig Harbor is a dog town, and sometimes it seemed as if this was a dog festival with all the dogs walking their people and watching the festivities.
So that wraps it up for the Gig report!
I hope you all had a good weekend.
Have a colorful day
