Arts festival down on The Farm this weekend
Trout Lake News
Fireworks, and family BBQ's aplenty were seen here in Trout Lake last weekend. The weather finally has started to cooperate and summer seems to be in full force now and there are plenty of upcoming events to prove it.
Coming up this weekend in Trout Lake is the Festival of the Arts. It will be held Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., once again at The Farm B&B on Sunnyside road. Come and check out the amazing art being created by more than 50 different unique artists. The day will also feature many local and out of area musicians performing both days. Enjoy some of the food and maybe even a cold beer while taking in the great free entertainment. Some the acts this year will include Spring Creek Bluegrass Band, Chigwaya Marimba Band, and Sky in the Road plus many others.
Call to all women in the area, lace up those running shoes and start training for the Wild Woman Trail Marathon and Relay on Saturday, Aug. 11. It will be a weekend of good trails, good food, and good friends. 26.2 miles of girl fun the Wild Woman run is a trail marathon created by and for (primarily) women. Run the whole thing or grab some friends and divvy up the effort. You can have up to four on a team with legs from 4.6 to 8 miles. Sure, the Gifford Pinchot National Forest has some hills (and even a 12,276-foot volcano) but don’t let that deter you. You won’t get even near tree line—and with every run up, there’s just as much glorious down.
Sign up for just the run, or stay for the entire weekend, if you’d like. You can camp (RV, tent or under the stars) in a big field at the base of Mt. Adams. Wake up to pre-run yoga to energize your legs. After the run, rejuvenate with post-run yoga poses and refuel with some outrageous wood-fired pizza prepared in Solstice’s traveling brick oven. As an extra treat, it just so happens that the stars have aligned and they will be falling from the sky on Saturday night. There’s no better place than Trout Lake— far away from all the city lights—to watch the Perseids meteor showers.
