Week of April 14th

In this week's La Conner Weekly News:

Tense Moment - It was the fourth inning, and the bases were loaded, when La Conner Braves' Kyle McKnight ran past Friday Harbor's third baseman Roy Taylor during their April 6 baseball game

Tulips, tourists and a happy town - Sandy Stokes
Thousands of tourists converged on La Conner. Their cars spilled out of the pay parking lots on both ends of town and lined nearly every residential street. And cash registers all over town were making sounds that are music to merchants' ears.

Breathtaking - Can you blame all the visitors who drive for hours for a glimpse of what our local bulb farmers grow nearby? And we get to live here.

What? No fireworks? - Alexander Kramer and Sandy Stokes
 La Conner's Chamber of Commerce is soliciting donations to pull together the $4,500 needed for this year's 4th of July fireworks display.

Older Jim Smith (Notes from Pull-And-Be Damned) and Mickey Bambrick (Nuggets from Norway) can be found here.

Don't forget to pick up this week's issue for the latest from our entertaining local writers.

Equine Eyewear - It's too soon to say whether this is the next fashion fad. On Saturday, this miniature was the only horse in town wearing sunglasses. The bespectacled equine was delighting crowds during the Kiwanis Not-So-Impromptu Parade.

Tulips: Resilient beauties - Alexander Kramer
As last weekend demonstrated, each year, huge crowds of tourists come to view snow geese and spring tulips. This year is no different, even though April, the Tulip Festival month, began with less-than-nice weather.
