Apologies for the short post. I'm very busy catching up on 18 months of outdoor fun! August looks to be ramping up quite nicely as we have slowly peeled off our masks and fear of activities! There's a little something here for everyone. Get out your calendars, these are in chronological order.
Summerfest is up first on 7/30-8/1. Street market, arts/crafts, wine and beer festival, food trucks, and live music with 35,000 of your closest friends at the Marina waterfront park. Buy tickets and find details here. I'll be fulfilling my dream of being a bartender at this event on Friday 7/30 so come visit me!
Concerts in the Park are happening in the month of August. Enjoy a little live music outside! Kids concerts are Tuesdays 10-11am at Juanita Beach Aug 3, 10, 17 and Evening concerts are Thursdays 7-8:30 at Marina Park on Aug 5, 12, 19. Details here.
