Free Entrance Day in National Parks. Happy Birthday National Park Service! Get ya booties outside because Friday is free entry into any National Park! This only happens a few times a year so definitely worth it to take advantage. There are more than 400 national parks so take yo pick.
Beat the Heat in Kirkland Wine Walk. I think this title is a little misleading as alcohol (especially wine) warms you up? Anyways, who am I to decide what to name an event?! Anywhosies, the Kirkland Wine Walk will begin at the Heathman Hotel and will allow you to taste local wine while waltzing from shop to shop.
