A summer weekend in Blaine and Birch Bay: Kite festival, Splash Day and youth orchestra performance


Blaine families had a festive start to the first weekend of summer break, from Splash Day in downtown Blaine on June 21 to the Steel Magic Northwest orchestra giving a performance on G Street Plaza on June 22 and the Birch Bay Kite Festival taking over Birch Bay State Park June 22-23.

Blaine-Birch Bay Park and Recreation District 2 held its annual Splash Day, where children played in inflatable sprinklers and held water gun fights on a blocked off street downtown. 

The Steel Magic Northwest orchestra, a 37-member youth orchestra from the Seattle area, got the crowd moving with Caribbean, pop and other songs. The performance was part of a weekend tour through northwest Washington and B.C.

The Birch Bay Chamber of Commerce had free kites for Birch Bay Kite Festival attendees to fly along the shoreline of Birch Bay State Park as well as a vendors market, live music, food trucks and other family activities.
