Olympia Harbor Days (OHD) an annual non-profit festival, celebrates the return of the vintage tugboats of the Puget Sound to Olympia for three days of entertainment, food, art, history, and a last farewell to summer. Vintage tugboats, retired or working, are moored at Olympia’s Percival Landing where you can Tour the Tugs on Saturday.
