Everything is coming up yellow orange and white at Seabrook’s new festival, Daffodil Days, March 17 – 19. To celebrate the blooming of 4000 bulbs, planted last fall, Seabrook Town Merchants are decorating their shops in a full regalia of yellow orange and white. Ericka Corban is singing about it. People are parading and there are art shows and a Spring Saturday Market. A free event for everyone to celebrate!
Kick off the weekend Friday evening at 7 p.m. at the North Coast Montesssori School’s Artist Showcase, featuring local north and south beach artists, such as Karen Pfifer (drawing), Ada Rosman (mixed media), Senja Antilla (driftwood mosaics from Washaway Beach), Heidi Ordelheide (oil) and more. Artists will be selling their work with a portion of the proceeds going to the North Coast Montessori scholarship fund. An artist’s reception with music by Ericka Corban will take place at the same time. The Artist Showcase will also be open at the Montessori school during the Spring Saturday Market along Seabrook Ave. from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Spring Saturday Market vendors will include Sassy Seafood, Gaia Blends, fresh eggs and meat from Little Farm by the Sea, daffodils and bulbs from the Satsop Bulb Farm and glassybaby.
Come early on Saturday morning and wake up with a mountain bike ride at 8 a.m. lead by Buck’s Bikes for 6-8 miles along the forested single track.
Eric Hawley will be sand sculpting all day.
The YOW (yellow orange and white) parade, lead by the Hoquiam High School Marching Band begins at 11 a.m. Hear the music and watch, people, dogs, bikes and all non- motorized transportation (wagons, skateboards, etc) strut their stuff to the Town Hall or participate yourself! There will be prizes for the best hat, best dog costume and most festive outfit. Everyone will have a chance to vote on the best merchant window.
Plan to picnic after the parade. Bring your blankets, and picnic basket or purchase a to- go lunch from our local restaurants and join us out on the lawn. Fresh Squeezed lemonade and orange juice will be available to benefit the Seabrook Community Foundation which donates generously to Grays Harbor charities.
