I saw this little guy while at Fresh Paint and the Farmer’s Market on the Everett Waterfront Sunday afternoon. Just had to share pictures of him and the day. It was a great weekend in Everett as more than three thousand people came to downtown Everett Saturday to experience the 1st ever Everett Craft Beer Festival. In addition to 27 brewers, people enjoyed live music and lots of food and artwork. Meanwhile at Marina Village on the Everett Waterfront thousands spent time at the 16th Annual Fresh Paint watching artists at work and enjoying great food and street performers. Sunday’s Everett Farmer’s Market was packed with many vendors doing a brisk business and creating art of their own. I was able to take pictures Sunday of both Fresh Paint and the Farmer’s Market. It was truly a great way to spend a Sunday.
