Saturday is expected to be beautiful, with cooler temperatures and a bit of a breeze. Why not spend Saturday afternoon exploring Washougal? There’s the popular Washougal Arts Festival from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Reflection Plaza, featuring art for sale by almost 30 local artists. Grab a bite and a pint at Amnesia Brewing or a cup of expertly brewed coffee at Washougal Coffee Company, enjoy sushi at The Sushi Joint, pamper yourself with a beauty treatment at Glo Beauty Lounge, and browse the latest fashions at LuLu’s Boutique. (If you’re feeling adventurous, you might even get a tattoo at 3rd Heart Tattoo.)
Later in the evening, head down to Marina Park, where the Port of Camas-Washougal is hosting a riverside concert. From 6 to 7 p.m., King Louie and LaRhonda Steele will begin a music-filled evening with soul, rhythm & blues. Then, local favorite Johnny Limbo & the Lugnuts will entertain the audience from 8 to 9:30 p.m., wrapping up the concert with hits from the 50s and 60s.
There will be a beer garden and food vendors, face painting, balloon animals, games, and plenty of family-friendly fun on the banks of the beautiful Columbia River. Washougal’s riverside concerts are extremely popular, so come early to save your spot. For more details, or to learn more about the Port of Camas-Washougal, visit www.portcw.com.
