Pacific City Honors the Dory Fleet- Dory Days

Oregon Coast Festivals http://www.sandlakecountryinn.comPacific City honors it's Dory fleet with the 54th Annual Dory Days Festival July 20-21, 2013

The Dory Fleet fishermen use this small flat-bottomed boat to crash through the surf headed for the plentiful waters of the Pacific. At day’s end, they ride the waves back to shore and slide onto the beach. The original design of the dory allows it to launch from and land on the shore.

There will be Dory rides, food vendors and arts & craft vendors.
