Victorian Festival, Port Townsend

Last weekend was the annual Victorian Festival in Port Townsend which celebrates Port Townsend’s heyday of the 1890s. There is a focus on Victorian era clothing – many residents don period-appropriate threads – and a variety of events. This year there was a bare-knuckle fight exhibition and a gattling gun demonstration. This funeral carriage was on display Saturday and a costumed passerby volunteered to honor its history. On Sunday we took a tour of a number of historic downtown buildings. I’ll show you some of what we saw in the next few days.

  1. That looks like lots of fun. And they went out in style in your area back in the “good ol’ days.” What a funeral carriage. Were you all decked out in “appropriate threads” also?
