With sunny skies throughout most of the 78th Northwest Water Carnival, Admiral Matt Boeke summed up the event by saying simply, “All in all, it was a great 10 days.”


The events of the water carnival’s final weekend were all “well attended,” Boeke added —even Friday night’s water fights and Party in the Park, despite the rain showers that forced the festivities to be temporarily relocated inside the DL Pavilion.
