A friend recently wrote on social media, “If my Facebook feed is to be believed, everyone in Olympia is either at White Pass or has the flu.” While this might appear to be true, there are so many more folks out enjoying the many activities, theater shows, hikes, volunteer opportunities and adventures around Thurston County. Me? I’m actually going to be at White Pass. For those staying in town, check out our weekend event highlights below. And, as always, you can access our full events calendar page for all our listings.
