The month of May kick starts the summer of festivals, so I am going with the “Festival Fun” challenge theme for this month.
So your challenge, if you choose to accept it of course, is to show me your best photo taken from any of the festivals, events etc. happening in the next 4 weeks. Your photo MUST have been taken at one of these upcoming “festivals” this year. Don’t show me a blurry photo of a viking from last year (well for that matter don’t show me a blurry photo of anything…ever) but I want current photos from THIS YEAR.
There are plenty of things going on in our area and heck you don’t even have to attend any of these because I am sure there is multitude of events going on across the water as well:
May 3rd. Bremerton Cinco de Mayo Celebration on
May 12th-17th. Port Townsend Rhododendron Festival
May 16th-18th Poulsbo Viking Festival
May 17h. Bremerton Armed Forces Day Parade
May 24th-25th. Kitsap Harbor Festival
May 24th. Port Orchard Seagull Calling Festival
May 31-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. I am 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 me.
DEADLINE IS MONDAY JUNE 2nd!
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 : firstname.lastname@example.org.
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:

Nine-year-old Mackenzie Smith of Port Orchard used her vocal talents to attract seagulls at Saturday’s Port Orchard Seagull Calling Festival on the city waterfront. It was the 20th year of the quirky event.
