Stop and Smell the Rhodies ~ Rhody Fest 2022

(Airdate: May 3, 2022) In 1935, a local businessman convinced Hearst Metrotone News to come and film the blooming rhododendrons in Jefferson County. Hearst provided “short subjects” to theaters throughout the United States. Thus was the inspiration for Port Townsend’s annual Rhododendron Festival. Join Missy Nielsen of Everybody Can as she discusses the return of our most beloved festival with Rita Hubbard and Mary Crozier. From Bed Races to Pet Parades this festival hearkens us to come out and “Smell the Rhodies.” Join us for this conversation!
