Bella's Birthday Bash

Mayor Reed proclaiming Sept 13, 2008 Stephenie Meyer Day in Forks.
Our own "Chief Swan" - Police Chief Mike Powell, and Mayor Reed.

Some of the birthday crowd.

Happy Birthday, Bella! Isabella Swan is the main female character of the book and movie, Twilight, set here in Forks by the author, Stephenie Meyer, as well as the three subsequent novels, New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn. These four books have been in the top five slots of the USA Today Bestseller list for about the last two months. Not bad for a first-time author! Way to go, Ms. Meyer!

More birthday crowd.

There were quite a few fans of the series in town for the day of celebration. Adding 1000 or so people to a town of about 3000 is very noticeable! Great fun was had by all it seemed. We certainly had a good time people-watching!

I'll post some of the interesting cars that arrived for the day as well, on a future post.
