LOCAL SUMMER FUN

By happy • July 13th, 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!
