Sequim: Lavender festival tours conclude tonight; vendors say sales are brisk

SEQUIM — Lured by the magical powers of lavender flowers, thousands of people came to the Sequim-Dungeness Valley on Friday and Saturday for the first two days of the sixth annual Celebrate Lavender Festival.

Dressed in walking shorts, sandals, sun dresses and hats — many made of straw — sun-drenched visitors made their way among rows and rows of lavender plants, watched demonstrations on ways to use the plant and enjoyed endless tasty treats.

An evening of musical treats provided by the Grand Olympics Chorus of the Sweet Adelines and a melodrama at the Dungeness Schoolhouse brought Saturday’s activities to a close.

Temperatures nudged the mid-70s Saturday afternoon, but breezes off the Strait of Juan de Fuca and tasty, cool treats kept most from being too hot.

The festival, which includes the tour of eight farms and a downtown street fair, ends at 6 p.m. today.

Admission to the eight farms on the tour is via a $5 button which can be purchased at two locations at the street fair on West Cedar Street or at farm entrances.

Farms on the tour are:

* Cedarbrook Herb Farm, 1345 S. Sequim Avenue.

* The Cutting Garden, 303 Dahlia Llama Lane.

* Jardin du Soleil, 3932 Sequim-Dungeness Way.

* Lost Mountain Lavender, 1541 Taylor Cutoff Road.

* Olympic Lavender Farm, 1432 Marine Drive.

* Purple Haze Lavender, 180 Bell Bottom Lane.

* Sequim Valley Ranch, 184 Coulter Road.
