It was such a big weekend, that I needed to come to work to get some rest!

It was a BIG weekend!

Summer in the Great Pacific Northwest is the best!  This summer the weather has been fantastic.  There’s so much to do, and in fact too much to do at times.  Much like it was this past weekend.  We had 2 days of HareFest, Blue Oyster Cult at the Clark County Fair, Great White at the Yamhill County Fair, there was a two day local celebration going on in Vernonia (I was there to visit my cousin, so I ran into the downtown festivities), and probably several other fairs and festivals that I didn’t know about. 

This is all great, and it’s really fun to go out and see live music, eat things that you shouldn’t, enjoy the great weather, etc…but it’s tough to make a decision on where to go and what to see. 
There’s still a lot of events and fun left in the weeks ahead.  The Oregon State Fair is always a good time, with REO and Loverboy providing the rock this year.  Heart and Jason Bonham are at the Sleep Country Amphitheater on that same Friday night.  The Zombies play the night before those shows.  So, I’m looking at another case of “Iris needs a clone” as we approach the end of the month.  Oh, and then College Football season starts that Saturday, August 31st

This coming weekend is The Bite of Oregon, Tualatin Crawfish Festival, Rock the Runway at the Benson Hotel, Cold Blood at the Roseland, and Leon Russell at the Aladdin.  Make a decision, some plans, have fun and enjoy the summer!
