SIDNEY — The return of the Anacortes Ferry to Sidney is a sure sign spring — and tourist season — is once again upon us.

This Sunday, April 6, the community gathers at the Sidney International Ferry Terminal to welcome the first vessel of the spring season. At 11 a.m. on Sunday, residents and local community leaders will bring U.S.A. and Canadian flags to the waterfront. A bagpiper will greet the first visitors as they drive and walk off of the vessel. The ferry is scheduled to arrive at approximately 11:10 a.m. Red serge-clad RCMP officer will join with Sidney’s Town Crier, Kenny Podmore, and criers from Washington State and Anacortes, Wa. are expected to be on hand.

Anacortes is one of Sidney’s three sister cities (the others being Nimi, Japan and Cairns, Australia).

The ferry’s spring schedule runs to June 14, 2014.
