From Hollywood to Hawaii, Thousands Come to Everett For Cannabis Cup

September 6, 2014

Downtown Everett, Events in Everett


Actor David Arquette chatted with folks before going into Comcast Arena for the Wailers Show

The first day of the High Times Cannabis Cup brought several thousand people into the streets surrounding Comcast Arena in downtown Everett. In addition to educational seminars inside the conference center, there were booths in two parking lots on either side of the arena where vendors displayed various cannabis related items and people tried various strains of marijuana. The Wailers took the stage around 8:30pm an played the entire Legends album. Actor David Arquette came up from California and spent a good part of the day attending the event and then went into the concert. Outside of the arena a street preacher holding an electronic tablet stood on a stool shouting words of salvation as people walked by. Unofficial attendance figures for Saturday looked to be between seven and eight thousand people. An informal poll revealed people came from as far away as Rhode Island and Hawaii. Here are a few photos from Saturday night’s concert. The event continues from Noon until 7:00pm on Sunday. We’ll have a follow up on the economic impact soon.
