Crosby Days bringing the old-fashioned fun

After more than 20 years, Seabeck’s annual festival is still going strong.

Crosby Days is 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. this Saturday, Aug. 11, at the Crosby Community Club on Christopher Road in Seabeck. The free event is open to adults and children of all ages.

“Basically it’s an event that’s for families,” said Deanna Durbin, co-organizer of Crosby Days. “You can bring your kids and have a good time.”

Durbin and her husband, Darrell, organized this year’s event which includes craft vendors, a fun house, train rides, kids’ games and logging demonstrations. The parade starts at Camp Union Grocery at 10 a.m.

New to this year’s festival is a tractor rodeo. Tractor drivers will complete an obstacle course and earn points for each obstacle completed successfully.

“This is the first they’ve done it, so it ought to be pretty interesting,” Durbin said.

Durbin and her husband contemplated having a tractor pull at this year’s festival, but didn’t have adequate facilities to house the event.

“We didn’t have room for a tractor pull and thought it’d be fun to have something different,” she said.

Central Kitsap Fire & Rescue will fix a chicken dinner at Crosby Days. Hamburgers, hot dogs, root beer floats and ice cream sundaes are a sampling of the foods available this Saturday.

“We’re going to have great food,” Durbin said.
