Never mind the fact that the whole Celebrate Shoreline event lasts ten days - more if you include this weekend's performances of the Aurora Theatre Company.

The main festival itself, held on August 16 at Cromwell Park, just keeps adding more and more activities. This celebration of Shoreline's 19th Birthday is hitting its stride.


Shoreline Area News photographers Steven H. Robinson and Jerry Pickard got around to everything and here is a selection of their photos.

Besides all this, there were opportunities for people to test their strength, buy books and find out what neighborhood they lived in from the Council of Neighborhood, buy a brick to honor a veteran from the American Legion booth, talk to police officers, get a balloon animal, eat a rainbow sno cone, play with bubbles, listen to live music performances, talk to political parties, talk to public schools representatives, and meet friends.

If you missed it, you'll have another opportunity at Shoreline's 20th Birthday, next year.

The City forecast 9000 attendees at the festival. Mayor Winstead said at the Monday City Council Meeting "hundreds" attended. Which was it?

Our reporter says that a couple thousand over the course of the day would be a conservative estimate.
