FRAMES: Photo Challenge #65: Festival Fun

May 13th, 2013 by Meegan Reid

This upcoming weekend (May 17th-19th) kick starts the summer of festivals, so I thought, why not have a Festival Fun themed photo challenge!

So your challenge, if you choose to accept it of course, its to show me your best photo taken from any of the festivals, events etc. happening in the next three weeks. And there are plenty of things going on for example:

May 13th-18th. Port Townsend Rhododendron Festival

May 17th-19th Viking Festival

May 18th. Armed Forces Day Parade

May 25th. Kitsap Harbor Festival

May 26th. Port Orchard Seagull Calling Festival

June 1st. Port Gamble June Faire

So grab that camera as you are heading out to watch a parade or taking the kids to ride the carnival rides. And we are using the term “festival” pretty loosely here, any type of event that has a festive feel with a lot of people attending, counts as a festival to us.

DEADLINE IN MONDAY JUNE 3rd!

Entries may be uploaded via the “Upload Kitsap Frames Photo Challenges here.” link over on the right hand side of this page or you may email them to me if you prefer : mreid@kitsapsun.com.

YOU MUST INCLUDE YOUR REAL NAME SOMEWHERE IN THE EMAIL TO ME OR ON THE UPLOAD FORM, I will not credit photos to FishingIsMyLife@yahoohotmailgmail.com

Stand-outs will be chosen and published in an upcoming print edition of the Kitsap Sun.

Here are a few from our archives from a few of the festivals listed:
