The day after the annual Gratitude Gala at the Whidbey Institute is the Chinook Community Festival. The aim of this event is to be an open house to friends of all ages to celebrate the wonderful gifts we have in the 100 acre Chinook Forest.
The Chinook Festival is a family-friendly celebration of land, friendship, and community.
Pink Parasol Productions, a local arts non-profit, brought the supplies for people to paint "Whidbey Island Rocks"
