Ahhhh I love summer don’t you? The weather has been great here in the Northwest and I even read that we are having the best summer in the country! I believe it since everywhere I drive I see license plates from almost more states than I see Washington Plates. I have also heard that we have the jobs and everyone is moving here. Of course, I am happy about this and look forward to helping more families make a smooth move to our beautiful state!
With all this sun and our great events going on in August go enjoy all our beautiful area has to offer!
This weekend for example brings one of my favorites. I grew up going to this festival every summer. Its the The Taste of Edmonds which runs from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday and from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday at the Civic Playfield, 310 Sixth Ave. N, Edmonds.
I wish I could go but my kids have been up in Lake Sammish for camp this week and I have to pick them up. I don’t think they will want to go anywhere this weekend. After all I can just see their faces since they have not had any Xbox time for a week!
Another great event this weekend, and as a animal lover I must share, is the Mutt Strutt. The event goes from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at Langus Riverfront Park, 400 Smith Island Road., Everett.
There is seriously something for everyone this weekend!
•The Stillaguamish Festival of the River and Pow Wow is Saturday and Sunday at River Meadows County Park in Arlington.
•The Marysville Street Festival will showcase local produce, artisans, musicians and artists along Third Street on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
•A show of fuchsias is from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at Country Village in Bothell.
•The Collectors Car Show and Outdoor Market will be at the Camano Center at 606 Arrowhead Road on Saturday from 10 a.m. until 3:30 p.m.
Earlier in the summer I gave everyone these two links that I have been using faithfully all summer for whats happening so I can keep my poor bored kids engaged for the summer. Here they are again. Go, See, Do From the Everett Herald. Also, scroll down on the page for the Splash link to fairs, festivals and more.
Want to go down to Seattle this weekend? Great fun happening all over the Northwest.
