Thursday, October 28, 2021
Over three thousand gathered in and around Anacortes to celebrate the first Puget Sound Indian Fair in 1930. The weekend long celebration was filled with dances, activities, the selling of crafts and foods, and banquets. The big event of the weekend was the La Conner war canoe race, in which the canoe, "Telegraph," was "defeated for the first time in a great many years," by rival canoe, "The Cyclone."
