Tiny Festivals Brochure

This brochure describes some of the many annual festivals to be seen along the Great Northern’s line. Photographs portray the Minneapolis Aquatennial, Portland Rose Festival, Spokane Lilac Festival, St. Paul Winter Carnival, Tacoma-Puyallup Daffodil Festival, Wenatchee Apple Blossom Festival, and a photo of Northwest Indians that somehow is supposed to represent rodeos and roundups.

No Seattle festival is mentioned, but a large map shows a hydrofoil boat race in the Seattle area. I can’t find any record of it on line, but at one time one of the boats racing on Lake Washington was called Rocky and had an image of Rocky the Great Northern goat on its hull.
