Hundreds of people took in the Sequim Lavender Festival’s opening ceremonies on Friday morning at the street fair.
Gardening personality Ciscoe Morris ushered in the 14th year for the festival by throwing lavender buds with Scott Nagel, festival executive director; Bill Benedict, Clallam County Sheriff; Linda French, owner of John L. Scott Real Estate Sequim; Steve Tharinger, Clallam County Commissioner; and Ken Hays, City of Sequim mayor.
Morris received an honorary lavender lay from French and shared funny personal stories and techniques for growing lavender.
Festival events run through Sunday at the street fair, six farms and throughout Sequim.
