Sat 7/30-8/6 at Everest Park, Kirkland is once again proudly hosting the Junior Softball World Series. That's big time, people. Nine teams..players from all over this planet are coming to our city this weekend for some serious competition, and it's really fun to watch. Ok, maybe I used to play softball and am a little biased, but the coolest part is that our local girls are participating! Even ESPN will be there, so you should be too. Go Kirkland! Great website with lots of details on the tournament here.
Sat 7/30- If you feel like doing a little bargain shopping- the Kirkland Highlands Annual Garage Sale is from 9am-2pm. Access the neighborhood at the corner of NE 85th and 114th Ave NE and follow the signs to participating homes.
This Sat 7/30: Music (and Motorcycles!)in the Park. Marina Park will be thumping this weekend from 4-9 pm on Sat with concerts in the park. Mirrorgloss will be headlining and you are encouraged to cruise your motorcycle down. Sunshine and extra motorcycle parking expected.
On Sunday 7/31, the Kirkland's beloved Classic Car show rev's up between 10-4 at Marina Park downtown. Larry Hanson is co-host and Lance Lambert of "The Vintage Vehicle Show" will be your emcee. Anyone can come and register their car in the show- reg starts at 6am on Sunday or you can email firstname.lastname@example.org. The favorite Motorcycle will receive a prize also!
Plenty of volunteer opportunities still await you too for this weekend: http://www.signupgenius.com/
And then....thinking ahead to even more fun, if that's possible...is our 5th Annual Summerfest on Fri 8/12 and Sat 8/13. Problem is, they are a bit short on funding for things like police, permits, entertainment, publicity. Go ahead and throw in a few bucks here. You'll be glad you did when you're sipping that cold Summerfest beer in a few weeks.
