Sequim: Third day pays off for Celebrate Lavender Festival

SEQUIM — Attendance figures at the sixth Celebrate Lavender Festival over the weekend were still being counted Monday.

But the festival’s president says one thing is for sure: Expanding the two-day event to include Friday worked perfectly.

“Expanding to three days did exactly what we wanted,” said Pat McCauley on Monday afternoon as she began wrapping up the event.

“We increased the number of people who attended and we spread them out over three days.”

The festival was a Saturday-Sunday event for the first five years.
