    10 years ago - 2004With less than a week before the Marysville Strawberry Festival officially kicks off June 12, it might not seem as

    though there should be too many preparations left to make for the annual festival, but as Maryfest board member Carol Kapua points out, the last week or so before the festival is typically the busiest time of the year.

    I still have to hold meetings with our volunteers, judges and marshals, as well as with the police and public works departments to discuss all the areas that will affect the parade so well know what to do, Kapua said Plus, there are all sorts of last minute paperwork to get caught up on, between the press releases, announcers books and packets for all the parade participants, with information on check-in locations and the line-up of the parade itself.

    Among the issues that the Maryfest Board of Directors needs to coordinate with the city of Marysville, and their own volunteers, are extra trash cleanups, staging for the royalty reception areas, street closures for events such as the trike races and the Berry Run, and shifts for stands to offer food and water to just about everyone, including the TV3 camera operators.

  • Dear Friends and Visitors,As Mayor, I welcome you, your family and friends to the city of Marysville, proud home of the Marysville Strawberry Festival and Twilight Grand Parade.

    Join us for the 83rd Annual Festival as we Celebrate Marysville in style, in keeping with this years theme.

    Marysville has so much to celebrate, as youre sure to discover. Were a welcoming and growing community that celebrates diversity among our many cultures, as well as the rich agricultural heritage that stems largely from Marysvilles most famous fruit, the strawberry.

    The Strawberry Festival pays tribute to the annual berry harvest, and the role that strawberries have played as a part of Marysvilles colorful history for decades.

    The Strawberry Festival is one of the longest ongoing festivals in Washington state, and ranks among the most recognized strawberry festivals across the country.

    We invite you to join the thousands of families from around the Pacifi c Northwest, and parts beyond, who come to enjoy the full spectacle of summertime fun, food and events spread over several days. From the talent show, fashion show and Market in the Park to the carnival fun, strawberry shortcake, Berry Run and Twilight Parade that brings it all together in a grand fi nale, youre sure to fi nd activities that are just the right pace.

    The Strawberry Festival is about celebrating the good things in life that bring people together as a community, and extending that sense of belonging to all visitors, whether for a day or throughout the entire event.

    25 years ago - 1989Representing Marysville in appearances all over Washington is the 1989-1990 Strawberry Festival Court, which

    includes Princess Kamrin Eriksen, Queen Stefanie Reistad and Princess Tracey Harris. The three topped grueling competition for poise and communication skills to earn their crowns. The Grand Marshal for the 1989 Marysville Strawberry Festival Grand Parade was Stan Boreson. The former KING-TV star led a long parade of dignitaries, floats, bands and everything in-between in this years parade extravaganza. The weatherman was nice and the rains and winds that were forecast held back until Monday.

    We are pleased to welcome you to our great city, and we invite youto visit any time. Experience Marysville Live, Work, Play!

    Celebrate MarysvilleAnnual MarysvilleStrawberry FestivalTulalip Chairmans MessageOn behalf of the Tulalip Tribes, welcome to Celebrate Marysville, our 83rd Annual Marysville Strawberry Festival! This years theme is a refl ection of the commitment of the Tulalip Tribes, alongside the city of Marysville, to build strong, healthy and vibrant communities.

    The Tulalip Tribes share a strong partnership with Marysville, Everett and Snohomish County. As the regions fi rst ambassadors, Coast Salish culture has thrived on and along the waterways of the Puget Sound for thousands of years before the Point Elliot Treaty of 1855 brought the Snohomish, Snoqualmie, Skykomish and other tribes and bands together on the Tulalip Reservation.

    Together as friends, neighbors and partners in community-building and economic development, we hope this festival off ers a taste of the culture, history, entertainment and other opportunities our area off ers.

    During festivities, we invite you to visit our Hibulb Cultural Center, which is the best resource for learning about the Tulalip Tribes. And please, consider visiting our nationally acclaimed Tulalip Resort Casino, the Seattle Premium Outlet Mall, our amphitheater and restaurants! Your vital business helps to fund education, environmental restoration, social services, health care, law enforcement and art/culture for both Tribal membership and the surrounding region.

    Enjoy your visit and please come back soon.

    Hello!First, I would like to thank everyone who helped support me during and after my run for Strawberry Festival Royalty. I am honored to be your 2014 Strawberry Festival Queen and I cant wait for this years festival.

    When I think about celebrating Marysville, I think of our diverse community and all the exciting events we host, such as the Strawberry Festival. The Strawberry Festival has so much to offer. We have Kids Day, the Strawberry Shortcake Eating Contest, Market in the Park, a Carnival and, of course, our Grand Parade and so much more!

    I believe celebration is also about the memories. I have plenty from past Strawberry Festivals and I cant wait to make more as the years go on. The Festival brings families and our community closer as we all celebrate

    together. However, this would not be possible without the amazing volunteers that put the Strawberry Festival together. Thank you all for your time and effort!As your Queen I am excited to represent Marysville in a positive and

    outstanding way. My lack of royalty experience will not stand in my way on my journey. During my reign I hope to grow closer to our community and become a role

    model for younger kids.Last, I would like to welcome everyone to the Strawberry Festival and join us in celebrating

    Marysville!
