The Fourth of July Pig War Picnic, presented by the Kiwanis Club, San Juan Historical Museum. Top photo, Rosie Port, 8, of Seattle gets a bird's eye view of Friday Harbor from the OPALCO bucket. The bucket rose to a height of 45 feet. Second photo, children try a heritage activity -- cutting wood for shingles, just like the settlers did in the 1800s. Third photo, the audience enjoys historian Mike Vouri's witty dialogue regarding the U.S.-British military occupation of the island from 1859-1872. Fourth photo, a pie-eating contest devolves into a food fight.
