The Anacortes Arts Festival is welcoming Spring with several colorful April events. The 2nd Buffet Beach Bash is Friday and Saturday, April 19 & 20 at the Port Transit Shed in Anacortes. The evening features music by Garratt Wilkin & The Parrotheads – a Jimmy Buffett tribute band from northern California, who also performs classic rock favorites. The event will feature music, dancing, margaritas, cheeseburgers, parrothead swag, a costume contest – and hours of fun with a tropical theme. Doors open at 6pm for Margarita Happy Hour; the band starts at 7:30. Tickets are $45, available through the Festival website AnacortesArtsFestival.com. Proceeds fund arts education for the Anacortes School District.
