Hey Fairhaven, who’s your daddy?

Hundreds gathered at Village Green Sunday Apr. 26 to celebrate and honor Historic Fairhaven’s founding father, Dirty Dan Harris. This year’s 13th annual Dirty Dan Harris Festival included a wide variety of local food and merchandise vendors, competitions, Dirty Dan lookalikes, live music, a beer garden, and a chili cook-off.  The day started off with a kayak race from Boulevard Park to Fairhaven, with salmon tossing and donut hole eating competitions taking place back at the Village Green.

Event goers enjoyed a live music performance from the JP Falcon Band throughout the afternoon.  Local restaurants participated in the Chuckanut chili cook-off. Many people dressed up in unique costumes for the event, including the Whatcom Ladies of the Evening and those participating in the Dirty Dan lookalike competition.
