AUGUST 2019
 
                 Port of Ilwaco, Washington

 

Fall fun awaits!

 

Now's a spectacular time to visit the coast

 

There's so much to love about late-summer and autumn on the Long Beach Peninsula, from fresh berries and fabulous seafood to long evenings, tranquil trails and weekend gatherings. 

In this enews you'll find a few fun late-summer and fall happenings we're looking forward to, including North Head Lighthouse tours reopening, the annual Slow Drag on Sept. 6 that jumpstarts Rod Run weekend and the incredible salmon fishing we're enjoying at the port!

But there's also u-pick blueberries, the Wild Mushroom Celebration, the Cranberrian Fair in October and much more!

See you at the Port!
