There are some fun events happening around the Snoqualmie Valley this weekend. In addition to the grand opening of new Jeanne Hansen Community Park and Athletic Complex in Snoqualmie, North Bend is bringing back its fun Adventure Sports Festival to the downtown core and brand new business, The North Bend Growler Station, is sponsoring an inaugural outdoor Brewfest on Falls Ave in historic Snoqualmie.
The weather forecast looks good – sunny and in the 80’s – making a great Saturday to get outdoors and enjoy these local events.
