Expanded Quilcene Heritage Days lives up to its billing

QUILCENE — The third annual Heritage Days, advertised as “lots of free fun for the whole family,” delivered on its promise Saturday.

“We attracted more families with kids this year,” said the Rev. Becky Anderson, chair of the Heritage Days committee.

Heritage Days continues today, with historical displays and activities, a spinning demonstration, fiddle music and reminiscing.

Sponsored by the Quilcene Historical Museum, the event was expanded this year from one day to a full weekend of activities, starting with a spaghetti dinner and a dance at the school Friday night, sponsored by the school’s Booster Club.

Saturday began with a pancake breakfast at the Masonic Hall at 8 a.m., which will be repeated today. Cost is $4. The hall was also the site of variety of food vendors, live music and 30 booths selling crafts and garden plants.
