As the weather (gradually) transitions into more sunshine, we have noticed a shift to more outdoor activities. Certainly there are plenty of indoor fun activities around Thurston County but if you are ready to get back into outdoor fitness and enjoy the natural surroundings in our area then look no further than our Outdoor Activities section.
We are gearing up for a very busy weekend at the end of the month. You can expect to see stories about Arts Walk, Procession of the Species, Dragon Boat Festival, opening day of trout season, and the YMCA’s Healthy Kids Day. All of these events hit April 27 – 28 so stay tuned at ThurstonTalk.com so you don’t miss anything.
