Irrigation was introduced to Sequim 120 years ago. Before that it was pretty desert-like. No one could grow crops, so why would anyone want to live here? All that changed with irrigation. This week Sequim celebrates its 120th annual Irrigation Festival--the longest consecutively running festival in the state of Washington. And yes, they have a royal court who ride in the parade. I always dreamed of living in a place like Sequim, but I have to admit I never once aspired to become "Irrigation Queen."
