Waiting for the Music

After our long day at the Olympic Peninsula, we made a last stopover in a small town called Gig Harbor, where we wanted to have dinner. It turned out a festival was taking place and a lively atmosphere had filled the streets of the town and many people were waiting for a concert to begin, as you can see here. I later found out that it was National Night Out, a so-called community-police awareness-raising event, held annually on the first Tuesday in August.

Gig Harbor, located on the shores of the bay of the same name, an arm of Puget Sound, has got a population of just over 7,000 people. One of the towns claiming to be the ‘Gateway to the Olympic Peninsula’, it is located not far from the city of Tacoma.
