Summer in the South Sound

May 31, 2019

Lacey Rotary 13th Annual Duck DashThe duck dash has been a local tradition for the last 13 years coordinated by the Lacey Rotary Club. Every year there are amazing prizes to win including the chance at a brand new car! There are some changes to the dash this year due to a couple of circumstances. The location will be at the Thurston County Fairgrounds, and because of an oil spill contaminating the Deschutes the dash will be more of a raffle. The Rotary will have all of their usual family friendly activities and then some. Head to the fairgrounds with your whole family Saturday June 1st 11:00am-5:00pm.iStock-176096822 (1)


Lacey Fireworks SpectacularThis year Twin Star Credit Union and South Sound Center are bringing a day full of fun to Rainier Vista Park. Each year on July 3rd, south sound residents can take in a magnificent fireworks show. Start your day at the park with free admission and family friendly activities. There will be a kid zone as well as live bands for entertainment. The fun starts at 4:00pm and will be available until 9:30pm. Then grab your blankets and take a seat for the fireworks show at 10:00pm.iStock-976460276 (1)


Capital Lake FairMark your calendars for July 17th-21st and get down to the waterfront. This year Capital Lake Fair is celebrating your 62nd anniversary! This 4 day event is packed with different opportunities for all ages. From rides and standard fair food to music, a 3-on-3 basketball tournament and a half marathon.


Olympia Harbor Days(OHD)-  Is another local 3 day festival. OHD is seen as a farewell to summer taking place August 30th-September 1st. The fun takes place at Percival Landing. Saturday features vintage tugs boats that are available for tour and Sunday as the tug boats leave, be sure to stick around and watch for the Tugboat Races through the deep channel of Budd Bay.  

We are so fortunate to live in an area that celebrates locality with such fervor. All of these events are so much fun for the entire family and we encourage you to check out any one of them. Mostly importantly we hope all of our patients have an incredible summer!
