First Day of Spring in Olympia

by Janine Unsoeld

A 20 year tradition continued today as kids of all ages welcomed the first day of Spring at Percival Landing in downtown Olympia. Come wind, rain, snow, sleet, hail and yes, sun, the show goes on, and gathers both those who have participated for years, and newcomers alike. Today, the weather cooperated beautifully during the noon hour celebration.
