    This is going to be a spectacular addition to Birch Bay activities! Yes – everyone needs to jump “on board” and help make this a huge first year in a short amount of time. This is such a logical grouping of our recreational offerings and such a highlight of kayaking, paddleboarding, skimboarding, and kite flying – we have been overdue for this festival. Thanks to the people who have initiated this in the past month.
