Crazy Callen Weekend events schedule announced

SEQUIM — The Crazy Callen Weekend for the 2023 Irrigation Festival begins Friday and extends through Sunday.

It will be followed by the Grand Finale weekend May 12-13.

Crazy Callen Weekend is named in honor of D.R. Callen, who designed and developed the irrigation ditches that brought water to the prairies of Sequim and allowed farmers to thrive. The idea was considered by the general public to be so unusual that he was dubbed Crazy Cal.
