The Glass Aquarium added a new Official Product to our growing line-up of merchants supporting the festival with unique, locally produced merchandise or products. The 300 or so people who attended got their first look at the beautiful poster with artwork by Teresa Saia; labels on wine, beer and cider; and a new chocolate variety by Forte Artisan Chocolates. Warren Jewelers also unveiled their new jewelry addition to the Tulip Festival line, pendants and earrings in gold and silver depicting swans and tulips.
Attendees sampled the wares of restaurants at the Unveiling, exhibiting a true “Taste of Skagit.” Hundreds of samples were given out including mini banana splits by Big Scoop Sundae Palace, coconut chicken saute over rice by Max Dale’s Steak and Chop House, bleu cheese sliders by Skagit River Brewing, chicken wrapped in bacon by Majestic Inn & Spa, and chicken skewers with peanut sauce by Swinomish Casino and Lodge.
Four lucky attendees won door prizes from Heritage Bank and all the merchants doing Official Products for the festival. People also got to see the a review of all the festival events and activities that happened during 2014 via a power point presentation.
