The 8-29-1885, NORTHWEST ENTERPRISE reported, "The trip around Fidalgo Island on the CITY OF QUINCY and picnic at Deception Pass by parties from Oak Harbor, Coupeville, Utsalady, LaConner was participated in by a large crowd and greatly enjoyed by all. The LaConner band contributed greatly to the enjoyment. These excursions are to become very popular in the near future."
