It’s a fact. We love lists. What’s even better? A list that is full of fun reasons do something we already enjoy. Here is a great list of reasons why you should celebrate in downtown Olympia on October 18.

  1. It’s Third Thursday! Each Third Thursday downtown businesses present unique in-store promotions, sales, book signings, artists, music and more. See who is participating at OlyThirdThursday.com
  2. You can win cool stuff! As part of Third Thursdays you can get your competition on and win fun things from downtown retailers. Game cards available at participating businesses or download one HERE.  Only participating business reveal a letter to help you solve the phrase. Complete the phrase first and win.
  3. Music, music, music! From 4:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. you can discover performing artists at these locations throughout downtown.
  • Corner of 5th & Capitol
  • Corner of Olympia & Capitol
  • Corner of 4th &Washington
  • Near 4th & Cherry
  1. It’s a unique experience! Why shop at a box store when you can have a one-of-a-kind experience. Here are just a few examples:
  • Hot Toddy – You can enjoy bubbly and a 20 percent off store-wide sale – every Third Thursday. And, they are open until 8:00 p.m.
  • Encore Teas and Chocolates is offering a free cup of tea. You can sit and relax in their beautiful atrium. Have fun playing a Chocolate and Tea trivia game. Starting at 6:30 p.m. you can participate in a Native American style flute circle: listen and play!
  • Octapas Café is having a Grateful Dead Can Dance Party featuring live music with The Lumen and Vizual Noize!
  1. Support your community. Olympians thrive on being different. We wouldn’t want our house to look like everyone else’s. Why would we want our community to look that way? Peace, love, Olympia!
