Staffing the barbecue racks filled with coho salmon kept Bruce Wayne (left) and Tim Needham busy.
The city of Trinidad turned into a giant parking lot on a beautiful calm Sunday morning to handle the large crowd of attendees at the 61st annual Trinidad Fish Festival. Street corners and lawns were filled with yard sales, while the main attraction was the coho salmon from Alaska being barbecued for lunch next to the school.
Trinity Street was filled with live music and the usual booths of arts and crafts vendors and a number of community organizations. The walk up Trinidad head to tour the old light house attracted a lot of hikers, as did the open house at the Humboldt State University Marine Lab. See the slideshow below for highlights of the day.
Mother Nature decided to provide a more realistic weather setting for the U.S. Coast Guard rescue-swimmer demonstration in the harbor as heavy fog blew in partially obscuring the helicopter and rescue activity.
