This weekend many of us will be celebrating the Fathers and Grads in our lives. Thurston County weather is supposed to be spectacular – nearing the 80s! – so it’s going to be the perfect weekend for fun in the sun or cooling off indoors. There are events for Father’s Day happening in Olympia, Tumwater, Lacey and throughout Thurston County, as well as tons of other activities the whole family will love. You can access the full calendar here. Check out our highlights below.
