LONG BEACH and OCEAN PARK — The long Easter weekend, sunny skies and the annual Razor Clam Festival with two days of digging promise to combine for a spectacular weekend on the Long Beach Peninsula.

With this in mind, look below for photos we've taken of the fun at recent festivals.

This weekend's event

A two-day razor clam dig has been approved on the Long Beach Peninsula this weekend, April 20 and 21, just in time for the annual Razor Clam Festival.

The dig is approved on the following beaches, dates, and low tides:

• April 20, Saturday, 7:58 a.m.; -1.1 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Copalis;

• April 21, Sunday, 8:42 a.m.; -1.2 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Mocrocks

• April 22, Monday, 9:25 a.m.; -1.0 feet; Twin Harbors, Mocrocks

“This is a weekend opening that should not be missed,” said Dan Ayres, WDFW coastal shellfish manager. “The Long Beach Razor Clam festival on Saturday (http://longbeachrazorclamfestival.com), features clam digging and chowder contests, clam digging lessons, and live music — even pirates and mermaids making an occasional appearance.”
