Tents are taking over the Civic Center Field in downtown Edmonds, a sure sign that the annual A Taste of Edmonds festival is just around the corner.
The third-largest festival in the state of Washington, the Taste is celebrating its 30th anniversary this Friday-Sunday. The event is sponsored by the Edmonds Chamber of Commerce, and Chamber President Ron Clyborne encourages those out-of-towners visiting the Taste this year to also “head just a couple blocks south to experience downtown Edmonds and our beautiful waterfront.”
As a reminder, here are the details of this weekend’s event:
When: Aug. 10-12, 2012, Friday and Saturday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sunday, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Where: Civic Playfield, 310 6th Ave. N.
Admission: $3 Daily (12 and under free) Friday ONLY admission is free ‘til 3 p.m.
