The last weekend in April always brings a weekend full of family friendly fun and fishing! Trout fishing at its finest if you ask any of the kids at our local Lake Wilderness that night.
Lake Wilderness is an easy 30 minutes East from our office. The afternoon brought campers into the park to set up camp and to get their tackle ready for the trout derby that started at midnight.
Anglers get to launch out at midnight and fish until noon the next day. Local chambers and rotary clubs sponsor the annual event and give families a great night full of fishing, camping and fun including outdoor movies, games, camp fires, concessions, prizes and a fisherman’s breakfast the next morning.
This weekend, Seattle celebrates the Opening Day of Boating Season!
From its earliest days Seattle has celebrated important occasions with water festivities. The opening day on the Montlake Cut began in 1920 and has been celebrated the first Saturday in May and is steeped in tradition with kicking off the parade with the blast of a cannon and the raising of the Montlake Bridge. Seattle Yacht Club’s Opening Day has become the nation’s largest regional celebration of water, Spring and the opening of boating season. Participating yachts will be decorated to illustrate this year’s theme for Opening Day, “Boating Through the Decades”.
