EVERETT – Community members are invited to help recognize Everett’s storied past, spirited present and exciting future, as the city celebrates its 125th anniversary this year. The kick-off event, Everett: A Story Worth Telling, will take place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, June 2, at the Everett Station (3201 Smith Ave), with free, family-friendly events for attendees of all ages.

“We are so excited to celebrate our incredible city with our residents, visitors and community partners,” said Mayor Cassie Franklin. “Everett can be proud of all we’ve accomplished in the last 125 years, and we have a bright future ahead of us.”

City departments and several community partners, including the Everett YMCA, Everett Museum of History, Tulalip Tribes, Imagine Children’s Museum, Webbly of the Everett AquaSox, and the Port of Everett, will provide interactive activities for kids and adults at the June 2 event. Guests can expect live entertainment, an obstacle course, scavenger hunts, historical bus tours, adoptable pets and even a touch-a-truck section featuring a variety of City vehicles, including two antique fire trucks.

Other events to commemorate the City’s anniversary are planned for the summer, including several programs hosted by the Everett Public Library. The library will also invite community members to add their message to a time capsule, which will be opened in 2068.
