This Town Is Known for Surfing and Pie

Can you name the picturesque waterfront city where folks are having a great time during a downtown summer festival?

You can see sailboat masts in the background of one of these photos flying both U.S. and Canadian flags. And what’s with the giant inflatable rubber duck? There are a lot of restrooms set up for the event, and the PolyJohn Enterprises PJN3 units are getting a good workout on this sunny afternoon. This could be the setting for any coastal town festival, but it’s a real mystery for you to solve.

Can you name the city where these photos were taken? Here are a few clues:

1. This is a traveling maritime festival where visitors can take a ride on an old-fashioned schooner.

2. The city center is nestled around a waterfront, with steep surrounding hills you can see in the background.

3. Closely linked to an apparel company not headquartered here.

4. The festival park is in the shadow of a regionally famous bridge.

5. Home of the first indoor shopping mall, built in 1915.

6. The first time someone dropped a scoop of ice cream on a piece of pie happened here.

7. Surfing is big here, where waves reaching 15 feet during the winter are comparable to the biggest swells in Hawaii and California.
