This weekend (August 2-4) Seattle is in the thick of Seafair, a several weeks-long celebration of summer that involves events around the city.
On Saturday and Sunday at Genessee Park, on Lake Washington, crowds will gather to watch hydroplane races, Patriots Jet Team air shows, and wakeboarding competitions. Or, they'll sit with a beer at the beer garden and enjoy the inevitably beautiful weather.
Every Saturday in August, the Museum of History and Industry is screening outdoor movies featuring Seattle or the Pacific Northwest as the film backdrop. The events take place at the museum's Lake Union park.
Since it's finally August, much of the snow on mountain trails has melted. Check the Washington Trails Association's website for information on what hikes are good to go this weekend.
