Third Weekend in January
This is the first festival of the year for us. The Ferry Bluff Eagle Council is the main sponsor of this exciting event. We went for the first time in 2011, then came back in 2019 and 2020. This event is free to the public, donations are gratefully accepted! The base of operations is at the River Arts Center.

The festival includes presentations by authorities in eagle care, a bus tour to eagle watching sites in town. Inside there are exhibits from many agencies.
You can even get an eagle hat!
We took the bus tour and had a great time! We learned a lot about Eagles from the tour guide on board. We stopped at 3 sites,the view across from Eagle Island.
We also stopped at the dam and the VFW park. See the video of the tour.
After the tour we went down the the VFW again to see Marge Gibson release an eagle back into the wild. There were many people there to see it, so beautiful!
