Jul 01, 2018

Lindsey and Carolyn Echelbarger are the 2018 grand marshals of the An Edmonds Kind of 4th parade.

"Lindsey and Carolyn have been instrumental in creating what has been become the cornerstone of Edmonds' thriving new Waterfront District: Salish Crossing,” said Tom Budinick, owner of Salish Crossing’s 190 Sunset restaurant.

“They’re adding a new destination within our downtown, which draws people closer in to the waterfront,” Edmonds Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Greg Urban said.

“There’s continuation between those walking up from the fishing pier to the fountain now. There’s more between those two locations than there has been in the past. It’s just been hugely beneficial to our community.”

“What Lindsey and Carolyn Echelbarger have brought to Salish Crossing, founding the Cascadia Art Museum and making The Salish a true destination, is simply wonderful,” said Nikki Dickerson of First Financial Northwest Bank, located at Salish Crossing.

Lindsey Echelbarger graduated from Meadowdale High School and Amherst College in Massachusetts. He is the president of Cascadia Art Museum, and a former board member of the Edmonds Public Schools Foundation, Seattle Bank, the Association of Washington Business and the Washington Research Council.

Carolyn Echelbarger has lived in Germany, El Salvador, Washington, D.C., Georgia and California, where she graduated from high school in Carmel. She worked as a registered nurse and later raised her family.

The Echelbargers live in Woodway with their three Sealyham terriers and have two grandchildren nearby.
