Since 1957, Roche Harbor’s colors ceremony has been a time-honored tradition. The ceremony begins with a nightly retirement of four flags: Washington State, Great Britain, Canada, and the United States. Songs are played as the flags are lowered. But the most exciting moment happens as the American flag descends — a cannon booms across the harbor!
Following the ceremony, there is a weather announcement, a welcoming of guests, and a recognition of any special occasions being celebrated at the resort. (Runs early May through September.)
If you’re already aboard a Kenmore Air flight, this may be old news. But getting to the San Juans doesn’t have to be a slog. In fact, the scenic flight can be half the fun!
