People will see plenty of blue in Bellingham on Wednesday

The trees in the core of downtown Bellingham are looking a little blue.

It’s not because they’re depressed, but it’s to welcome the freshman class of Western Washington University to the city they will call home for the next period of their lives.

New students, Western alumni and friends are set to descend on downtown Bellingham Wednesday for the second annual Paint B’ham Blue for WWU celebration to kick off the start of the academic year.
