Expand your weekends and go south. Fun things to do are happening this August!
August 5th – 7th, Eatonville Arts and Music Festival: exchange the hustle of the city and head south to Eatonville for something different. The Eatonville Lions Club is hosting their annual festival to support local artists and musicians while raising funds to give back to the community in the form of scholarships to graduating seniors, support for the Eatonville Family Agency, and other worthy causes. Experience family-friendly, small town values while gaining access to the work of over 60 artists and crafts people with activities for the kids, too. Check out their hot food fixings from their on-site kitchen, in particular their renowned pot roast beef sandwiches, and of course beverages will be available! If you can help out, they are in need of volunteers. Expect this to be their biggest festival in at least 10 years! Check it out: https://www.facebook.com/eatonvilleartsfestival,
