2017 Summer Solstice Parade
During today’s farmers market local islanders continued a long standing tradition and paraded through main street in celebration of the Summer Solstice. People express themselves through song, dance, drums, costumes, ukuleles, you name it. Holiday Parades are highly anticipated and celebrated events in the community, with all ages participating and loads of support coming from the crowd. The sidewalks become filled with onlookers just as excited to be there as those in the march. The parade culminates in the village green as people dance with smells of food and music in the air. Orcas Island Realty just happens to be located with a perfect view of the festivities— look for our agents in the crowd!
