Friday Afternoon Club: Fathom This

Fathoms O’ Fun, Port Orchard’s annual festival o’ fun, is under way, with the opening of the Carnival on the Waterfront Thursday in downtown PO. Saturday is jam packed with activities, including the traditional snake race, a 5K run, a street fair and the chamber’s new “Street Scramble,” a fast-paced urban treasure hunt. At 6 p.m. Saturday is the event organizers refer to as “the granddaddy of Kitsap County parades,’ starting at 6 p.m. in downtown.

I stopped by Vintage to Vogue consignment store in PO today and got a preview of a hot act you’ll see if you watch the parade. Following on their award-winning performance with snow shovels last year, staff and volunteers from V-2-V, ranging in age from 9 to 75, will perform in an umbrella drill team. Last year, they won the coveted Grand Sweepstakes prize.
“We were just trying to beat the librarians,” said Suanne Martin-Smith.
Apparently those PO librarians really know how to bring it, with their book cart drill team.
This from the town that brings you the annual Seagull Calling Festival.
I love my beat.
