Viking Fest through readers' eyes | Slideshow

POULSBO — The Herald put out a call for your photos of Viking Fest, and quite a few answered!

Shaina Weintraub is a 2012 Kingston High School graduate, and just finished her first year at Central Washington University. She submitted several photos of the parade.

"My favorite part about Viking Fest is the parade and seeing the community come together for a couple hours and enjoy what's in front of us," Weintraub said in an email. "I really enjoy the marching bands, too!"

Ryen Stone of Silverdale also submitted a few photos of the parade. She sat with her young family — 2-year-old son Ryder and 3-week-old daughter Alston — and friends.

Thanks to everyone for submitting your photos!
