The 37th Bodega Bay Fisherman’s Festival is Saturday and Sunday, April 17-18 from 10am- 5pm in Westside Park. www.bbfishfest.org This has always been a fun, community effort run by local volunteers to celebrate our hometown fishing fleet and their families. All proceeds go to fund our local elementary school, the BB Fire Department, the BB Grange, Community Center and other local organizations. Salty dogs and regular dogs are welcomed, along with llamas and sea creatures. The boat building contest and race is a huge highlight along with the display of very cool rescue helicopters and of course the fishing fleet boat parade and blessing of the fleet. My artwork was chosen for the poster this year. I was lucky enough to be selected in previous years; 2001 and 2005. In 2008 I was honored to design the poster using an old photograph from the Ames family archives…one of Bodega Bay’s proud fishing families.
