What’s Happening In The Seattle Area This Weekend? | July 1

Hey there Seattle,

It’s SO HOT! 🙂  How many times have you heard that this week? 

Glad we are starting to cool off and return to normal temperatures.  Just in time for your Independence Day Celebrations!  Whether you’re planning to find a parade, grill some steak, or head out into the countryside and set off some firecrackers, make sure you take a moment to reflect on our wonderful country and what keeps us free!

Then get ready to have some fun! 

I usually watch the Independence Day Parade in Everett, but it doesn’t look like that’s happening this year.  You can still head out to Legion Park and see their evening fireworks display, though.  Maybe my kids are finally old enough to stay up late for that!

I’d love to hear about what you do this weekend.

Happy 4th!
