This was our most successful Razor Clam Festival event and our Fourth Annual.
Thanks go out to all Ocean Shores / North Beach Chamber of Commerce members for their participation. Thanks too go to the Students from the North Beach High School who volunteered so much time to help the Razor Clam Festival be a success, including the Freshman Class who had their own Picture-taking booth. Other volunteers from the community really helped us make this a great event.
Finally, the Fireman's breakfast served more breakfasts than ever so big thank you to the Ocean Shores Fireman's Association, their volunteers and all the fire fighters that showed up to help as well.
A Clamtastic time was had by all
You need a license for Razor Clam Digging and these are available at Ocean Shores Ace Hardware.
Digs are held in conjunction with the low tides and may be in the evening only, so make sure that you have the current information.
When you search for Clam dig information with the State of Washington, and other sources, the "Copalis" area is really "Ocean Shores"
The "Mocrocks" area is the south part of the North Beach from the Copalis river to the south boundary of the Quinault Indian Reservation.
