Despite some events being altered because of the continuing COVID-19 pandemic, the City of Sequim’s second Sequim Sunshine Festival is back with a number of community events set for March 5 and 6.
The cornerstone event of this year’s festival is the Sun Fun Color Run, with 5k and 1k options on tap on Saturday,March 6, and virtual event slated for March 6-31.
The Sequim-Dungeness Valley Chamber of Commerce has created the Sunny Sequim Scavenger Hunt for the festival. Participants can download the free GooseChase app on their smartphones to play the game, or stop by the Sequim Visitor Information Center, 1192 E. Washington St., to pick up a paper version of the game.
The scavenger hunt, which begins Friday, March 5, encourages family and friends to get out and explore the Sequim-Dungeness Valley, have fun and learn something new about the area.
In addition, the Sequim Sunshine Festival will bring back some of the lights on display during the holidays with an enhanced exhibit at the Water Reuse Site at Carrie Blake Community Park.
The festival will incorporate the city’s 2021 theme — the “Year of Kindness” — with the “Be the I in Kind” billboard, to be on display at the fun run and at Centennial Place (Washington Street/Sequim Avenue intersection). Festival goers are encouraged to take their picture with the sign, to look for other signs of kindness in town, and post to social media using the hashtag #BeKindSequim.
