Located in the foothills of North Cascades Mountains historical town of Issaquah hosts it's annual Salmon days Festival on the first weekend in October. This year the weather was incredible! Sun lit everything with soft impressionistic light, reminding me of works of Monet and Renoir.
Every year Arbor School where I teach art participates in the parade and students create art works related to the theme. This year theme was "Streaming Live", so we went with pixelated fish design, recycling packaging from new shelving, scraps of construction paper, old CD's and aluminum foil.
And we won the first prize for the float decor!
Aloha from Colors of Hawaii
Morning air was crisp and cold.
Princesses and Queens from all over the state were present too.
A lot of cheer were there too!
...and marching bands
...and karate schools showing mastery of self-discipline
Snoqualmie Tribe members were in the canoe with traditionl drums
Followed by a dancer
I truly enjoyed walking alongside the parade! Hope that you too are having a good time browsing through my Salmon Days Parade Gallery!
P.S. I almost forgot about wonderful audience lining up Front Street and Gilman Boulevard!
