Lynden's Raspberry Festival is Berry Fun
My first visit to Lynden took place during their annual Raspberry Festival. What a treat! This is the perfect time to visit this Dutch-style town and get a taste of their local culture. In addition to numerous activities, this festival features an assortment of baked goods and candies all made out of raspberries. I tried the raspberry fudge and was very impressed. Wow!
The downtown area is filled with people and activities during the festival. It features street vendors and a car show in addition to their permanent merchants. On Saturday, a petting zoo and wagon rides are offered downtown to entertain the young and old alike. If this isn’t enough to keep the family busy, the Pioneer Museum offers arts and crafts or you can attend the basketball tournament or the newly offered golf tournament.
The exact dates for the festival vary from year to year. Contact the local chamber of commerce for festival dates and a time schedule of activities. [more ]
