This city loves to party. Why wouldn't we? It's gorgeous weather and our parks are waterfront and our people are FUN! So, let's meet up for some summertime celebrating----
Kirkland Uncorked is THIS weekend July 17-19 in Marina Park. There's a 21+ Tasting Garden ($25 advance, $30/door) and an all-ages Street Fair (free). I'm going to go out on a limb here and say you might want to walk, bus, bike, scooter, or teleport because parking cannot be fun on those days. But there is some parking for those lucky 47 of you- tips on that and other details Uncorked can be found here. Be ready for lots of wine and culinary delights and some celebrity chefs.
The hours for each of the days is here:
Kirkland Uncorked Tasting Garden Hours*:
Friday, July 17: 5pm-10pm
Saturday, July 18: 12pm-10pm
Sunday, July 19: 12pm-6pm
*Must be 21+ with valid ID
Kirkland Uncorked All-Ages Street Fair Hours:
Friday, July 17: 2pm-8pm
Saturday, July 18: 11am-8pm
Sunday, July 19: 11am-6pm
If you look into your crystal ball you will also notice that you'll be attending Kirkland Summerfest of art, music, food and family fun on August 7th and 8th. Planning and fundraising to pull off this effort is swiftly underway.
Speaking of fundraising- congrats to the Kirkland Parks Foundation for achieving their fundraising goal for the Waverly Beach Park Picnic Shelter. That project will start this fall with a targeted completion by summer of 2016. Yay! MORE waterfront park parties! If you have ideas for how you think YOUR favorite Kirkland Park can be improved, the Kirkland Parks Foundation is ready to listen to your ideas.
