Olympia Wooden Boat Fair 2012


Wooden Boat Fair Olympia

Olympia's annual Wooden Boat Fair will be this coming weekend (May 12 & 13, 2012) - and what a great place to take Mom for Mother's Day!  This year's event is the 33rd annual fair, and strolling along the waterfront at Percival Landing and viewing the wooden boats is a favorite outing for our family.  The boats are beautiful, with many owners inviting people aboard to check out the details, and many with histories that go back and back and back in time.

And the boats are not the only thing happening at the Wooden Boat Fair.  There will be music, food, activities for kids (though hard to beat standing on a wooden boat and pretending to be the skipper!).  Craft booths will also entice you with many examples of creativity and artistry - and if you forgot to buy a Mother's Day present, here's your chance to redeem yourself when you see your mom admiring those earrings or garden art items.

You may want to make a day of it, with a brunch at one of Olympia's great downtown restaurants, a stroll through Farmer's Market, and then go enjoy the Wooden Boat Fair!

See you down there!
