Around our State Archives, Halloween doesn’t just mean the end of October; it also means the end of Washington Archives Month.
This year’s theme is Fairs and Festivals. The photo above shows competitors in the pancake flipping race during the 1956 Pancake Festival in White Center. The photo originated from the Museum of History & Industry.
By going to the Archives Month website, you can have access to this year’s very cool and colorful Archives Month poster. And we still have free printed copies of the Archives Month poster. If you want one, stop by our Executive Office in the Legislative Building on the Capitol Campus in Olympia, the State Archives office at 1129 Washington St. SE in Olympia, or one of the regional branches in Bellevue, Bellingham, Cheney or Ellensburg. If you plan to pick up a poster at one of the branches, check first to make sure some are still in stock.
