EDMONDS — The Port of Edmonds will celebrate its 70th anniversary from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday.
The celebration will take place at Public Plaza behind Anthony’s Homeport restaurant at the marina.
Free food and entertainment, including live music and an exhibition of classic cars by Bobo’s Rods & Customs, will commemorate the anniversary.
The Port of Edmonds is governed by a five-member board of commissioners, who are elected by the Port District’s voters to a four-year term. Port commissioners will be on hand Saturday to meet the public.
The formation of the Port District was overwhelmingly approved by Edmonds’ voters in 1948. The port’s mission is to promote economic development for the Edmonds-Woodway area. Its services include a marina, public boat launch, commercial business park and waterfront boardwalk.
