Kirkland is hosting the tastiest event of the season and Fido is invited. Enjoy 3 days of wine, cider, tacos, and more on the Lake Washington waterfront. Leash up the pup for Friday, the day of the Tiki Taco Throwdown, Cider Smash Northwest Cider Tasting, and live performances by The Hipsters and Herding Cats. Make sure the floof gets some rest before Saturday cuz there’s the Kirklandia Washington Wine Festival, more cider tasting, Eastside Salsa Marina Dance, and loads of noms. Round out the weekend with a day of more cider and wine tasting, food trucks, DJs, games, and lots of local vendors. You can buy tickets for one tasting or the whole weekend!

2. Saturday Morning Hike

Quiet Place Park, Kingston   
Saturday, June 11, 8:45–11:45 a.m.; request to join here 

If you’ve got a canine captain who ruvs the wind in her fur, she’ll be first in line for this hike cuz it begins and ends with a ferry ride (check out the ferry pet policy here). Walk on the ferry at Edmonds Ferry Terminal for $6-10 and disem-bark in Kingston for a 3.5- to 5-mile walk through Quiet Place Park. The whole pack will love the forest walk through the park, and if floof’s got more energy to burn, she can frolic on-leash on Saltair Beach Park about a half mile from the ferry terminal.
