Port Townsend: Low Tide Fest offers glimpse at life from the depths

PORT TOWNSEND — Guided beach walks, sand sculpture contests, “fish printing,” and boat and diving demonstrations are some of the high points of Low Tide Fest at Fort Worden State Park this Sunday.

The sixth annual Low Tide Fest welcomes families to the beach to take advantage of the unusually low tide, which will expose normally hidden marine life to view.

A host of new natural history exhibits, craft shows and educational programs will be offered at this year’s event, said Anna Bachmann, volunteer coordinator for the Marine Science Center festival.

This year’s festival will also be the culmination of the Fort Worden State Park Centennial Days celebration, which began Monday and runs through Sunday.

The festival runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday.

Admission is $4 for adults and $3 for youths.

Members of the Port Townsend Marine Science Center pay a dollar less.

Admission for children 5 and younger is free.
