Local Summer Fun

Local Summer Fun

by Jamie July 13, 2012

Who else has been spending their time soaking under the sun after work and finding shelter in the basements at night this past week? I’m definitely not complaining about this hot weather because it leaves for so many activities! Activities which are usually free!

Last week we discussed the importance of getting in touch with nature. The best part is: summer is the perfect time to explore with hiking, biking, climbing and many, many other outdoors sports.  If you are all natured out, and I don’t know how you could be; celebrate this wonderful weather by trying out some of the local events around town!

Here is a list of awesome local events to attend in the Tri-Cities:

Farmers’ Markets

Not only do you get to support the local neighbours, but you get the freshest and healthiest produce! So if you see a Farmers Market nearby, do make a detour and shop your groceries at a local farmers market near you!
