Robin Hood Day was an idea created by Eatonville residents during a down time in the economy. The lumber mill had closed and they were looking for ways to bring businesses and people to the town. One idea was a Robin Hood Day festival — including archery tournament, parade, an outdoor high school play and more.

Here are a few shots from the event. You’ll notice some familiar names: Dick Taylor, Florence Parrish, Dick Logston, Susan Burgess, Mike Van Clausen, Steve Packer, Dick Christensen, and Cecil Jordan.

    I almost fell out of my chair when I saw these pictures!! Sure brings back lots of memories! It was allot of fun. I especially remember a mock battle with the Seafair pirates as they came into downtown Seattle on their Duck. Robin Hood and his band were to engage in mock battle with them. As I charged the Duck and jumped up on it I banged my chin really hard, it brought tears to my eyes but had to keep my game face on since King 5 was capturing the event Thanks for posting memories.
