8 Great Ways to Enjoy the Summer in Arlington

You guys, I'm just going to say it: We have the best summers in the world.

I know, I know, California is sunny in February, blah blah blah, but hey, in western Washington, the months July to September really can't be beat.

It's hot and dry, but everything is still green and lush. You can't throw a rock without hitting a lake or a river, and while no one has air conditioning, even the midday heat is manageable.

So embrace that flip-flop tan, grab a picnic blanket, and read on. Here's how to make the best of your summer in Arlington, Washington.


1. Visit your farmers market every weekend! (You guys aren't surprised this tops MY list, are you?) This heat is bringing out the flavor in tomatoes, peppers and berries! Your farmers are swimming in a harvest--why shop anywhere else?? Legion Park, Saturdays, 10 to 3, be there!


2. Free entertainment in Terrace Park. Movies, concerts, and Shakespeare will all show in the park this summer, so mark your calendar with the city's schedule.


3. Float the river. Contemplate the beauty of the Stilliguamish River while you cool off. Please think SAFETY, the river is awesome and powerful. Life jackets save lives.


4. Library fun for kids and teens! From robotics to dinosaurs to watercolor classes, the Arlington branch of the Sno-Isle Library has something cool for babies, school age kids, and teens. Library schedule here.


5. Bike Centennial Trail. Bonus: throughout the city, you'll pass through the Arlington Art Council's installations of local art.


6. U-pick some berries! And then make them into jam. Or scarf them all down on the car ride home. Choose a Red Rooster Route Farm or search for Arlington farms at Puget Sound Fresh--they have an app, too!


7. Shop for treasures in historic downtown. Find unique gifts at Arlington Pharmacy, upcycled furniture at Bella Bungalow, and vintage goodies at Sadie Lane. Stroll Olympic and see what you can find!


8. Festival of the River & Pow Wow is coming up on August 9 & 10! The Stilliguamish Tribe's annual festival celebrates native culture and natural resources. This year entrance and parking are FREE! Find out all about it here.


Enjoy Arlington!

  P.S. Don't forget--FARMERS MARKET! ;)

Farmers Market Season is Almost Here!



The market opens in just TWO weeks:


Saturdays
July 5th to September 27th
10 to 3 
Legion Park lot 



You can help the market thrive: Don't just visit the market--bring a friend!


Did you know the market is run by a rockin' ALL-VOLUNTEER team? YOU can JOIN the fun and make a DIFFERENCE in your community. We need you!



Be a Social Media Booster:

1. SHARE, LIKE, COMMENT on our facebook posts to increase the impact of our outreach.
2. INVITE a friend to like the market's page or follow us on Twitter.
3. FORWARD our newsletters to friends and family. 


Host a sign:

Do you live in a visible location? ADOPT A SIGN to post in your front yard for the duration of the season to help promote local food and a strong community. Pick one up on opening day at the info booth, or email us--we will deliver to you!!


Be Hands-On Help:

We need some cheerful folks to help set up booths in the morning, and some to help break it down in the afternoon. Our main volunteer who performed this task last year is 7 months pregnant--we NEED a few good people for this crew! This commitment would entail arriving at the market at 8:30 am and assisting with tents, tables, signs, etc until 10 am. Afternoon shift breakdown is from 3 pm to 4:15pm. This is a 3 Saturday commitment.
