This past weekend was our town's annual Raspberry Festival. Raspberries are a huge crop in Whatcom Country and we celebrate that with style!!!
There's a great little 3 on 3 basketball tournament which is so fun to watch, especially the little kids!
Downtown is all closed off and hoops line the streets! A lot of the high schoolers help with coaching, reffing and score-keeping, and lots of volunteers keep things running smoothly.
Tyler played in the tournament for a number of years...
But the first year was especially sweet...
as they took home first place!
It's always fun to be a champion!!
Lots of food and craft vendors...
Jazz bands perform (those two little girls were singing!)...
And tons of raspberries and ice cream for the bargain price of $1.00!
And for the past few years and antique car show has been added. It seems to grow bigger every year! I have to admit that I wouldn't mind having at least one of these, but which one??? (warning: boatload of photo's coming up!)
The owner said these were Mother-in-law seats!!
I adore these old trucks...Volkswagen is still my favorite, but the Ford works too...and that color??? LOVE!!!
I really like this color...can you tell?
This backseat was the size of a couch! And I love the way the doors open!
Really like the yellow on this one.
This van was pretty cool! You sure could take a lot of people with you!
Gotta love the drive-in tray. Remember those good old A&W days?
There were so many of these gorgeous cars...I think having a matching vintage trailer would be sooo fun!!
Hubby and I enjoyed our few hours downtown. We haven't gone to the Razz fest for a few years...forgot how fun it is!!
What festivals do you have? If you ever want to visit ours, it's always the third Saturday in July!!
I'll leave you with a few pictures of something else Lynden is know for...their hanging baskets! Wish Mine looked like these!
