Downtown Bellingham turned Viking Blue Wednesday

Bellingham welcomed its newest residents Wednesday as the freshman class of Western Washington University converged en masse downtown.

New students, Western alumni and friends were on hand for the second annual Paint B’ham Blue for WWU celebration to kick off the start of the academic year. More than 180 trees throughout downtown were decked out with blue lights, and several businesses offered discounts.
