Vashon Island Strawberry Festivals 1978-1979 - John Sage :: FinchHaven Digital Photography

Two Vashon Island Strawberry Festivals, 1978 and 1979

It's almost hard to recognize anything, because so much has changed.

Cars parked out on the Island Highway; Vashon Village wasn't there, let alone the Vashon CC office park. Instead we had a *real* carnival with a Ferris wheel.

The trees planted along the sidewalk at Ober Park look like they'd just been planted. No playground; no library.

I was selling pottery both years with Janice Mallman.

The 1978 photos actually end up with one from the Fremont Fair.

In the 1979 pics the sharp-eyed will notice performers Rick and Mary Tuel; Vashimba closed out Festival on Sunday afternoon.
