Love: Tugboats? History? Arts & Crafts? Music? Food? Fun? Mark your calendar now for Labor Day weekend: September 1-3, 2017, Friday 5p-8p, Saturday 10a-7p, Sunday 10a-6p. Olympia Harbor Days (OHD) is an annual festival celebrating the return of the tugboats 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. Tour the tugs on Saturday but be on hand Sunday as the tugs leave shore at noon to participate in the annual and last remaining Tugboat Races in Washington! The tugs race the deep channel of the bay near Butler Cover. (Click on the Tugboat tab to see the 2016 winners!)
