AWESOME MARITIME FESTIVAL
Families, friends and community rallied at the 2014 Vigor Seattle Maritime Festival Family Fun Day. Hundreds voyaged for free on lake/canal cruises, visiting vessels hosted over 1000, folks enjoyed live music crew, boat building, survival suit races, kids programs, film...and much, much, more. Thank you to all festival attendees, Propeller Club/FEMA-AmeriCorps/NWS volunteers, vessel owners, contractors, public partners and so many more. (Photo by Martin Greenberg)
