Sip & Stroll

What’s better than sipping an alcoholic libation, strolling along the boutique-lined streets of Vancouver, and enjoying a lovely summer evening? Here’s the best part: all proceeds benefit the Hough Foundation, a local nonprofit organization that helps kids in our community cultivate self-reliance through mentoring, advocating for mental health and social services, and providing opportunities for classroom, after school, and early learning enrichment.

The seventh annual Sip & Stroll, from 5 to 8:30 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 19, will feature over 30 locations in both Uptown Village and in downtown Vancouver. Participants (21 years or older) will sample an array of fine wines, hard ciders, and craft brews at almost 30 locations while enjoying live music, shopping discounts and coupons, and light appetizers. If you get tired while walking, free shuttle service is available along the Sip & Stroll route. You can also come early for the annual Show & Shine car show, happening from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Main Street in Uptown Village.

Self-guided tasting tours will begin and end at the Burgerville Center for Responsible Community Leadership at 1602 Main St. Parking is available on the entire block south of the start location. Top off your evening with an after-party at Low Bar, where you can sample a specialty Sip & Stroll cocktail. Tickets are available online for $30 each at www.foughfoundation.org or $40 on the day of the event. Participants will receive a commemorative tasting  glass along with a tasting map.

Paddy Hough Parade

Vancouver is nothing if not big on tradition…and everyone loves a parade, so put those two things together and you’ve got the 23rd Annual Paddy Hough Parade, right down Main Street from noon to 1 p.m. on Friday, March 17. The best parade-viewing is on Main between 25th St. and McLoughlin, and you ought to arrive early because this parade gets more popular every year.

This green-tastic parade celebrates the birthday of Hough Elementary School‘s namesake and popular historical figure Patrick Hough, who was born on St. Patrick’s Day in 1846. Hough (affectionately known as Paddy) was an Irish-born educator who taught in Vancouver from 1899 to 1925. Hough School was named in his honor 17 years after he died, and the neighborhood sprouted up around the school became the Hough Neighborhood. And that’s your North Bank history lesson for the day!

The parade is sponsored by the Hough Foundation, a nonprofit community organization that works with philanthropic, business, civic, scholastic, and faith partners to provide local students opportunities for academic, physical, and social growth. For more information, visit www.houghfoundation.org. The parade is free and everyone is welcome, rain or shine.

Hough Hoedown

Grab your favorite gal, partner up with your favorite cowboy or join the fun solo (you won’t be alone for long) and enjoy the Hough Hoedown, in support of the kids, families and teachers at Hough Elementary—and all the children in the community who are served by the Hough Foundation. The boot-scootin’ hootenanny will be held from 5 to 10 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 4.

This is the second annual Hough Hoedown; the first was held in January of last year, and it was so popular and successful, the Hough Foundation decided to bring the event back for another whirl. This year it will be held at Warehouse 23, located right on the riverfront at 100 Columbia Street, with plenty of free parking on site. Tickets are $75 per person and include Western grub and beer by Vancouver’s Trap Door Brewing, live music, loads of dancing, and a silent auction benefiting the Hough Foundation.

The nonprofit Hough Foundation helps local kids with after-school music programs, mentoring and tutoring programs, basic needs like food, clothes, warm coats and shoes, and the popular Lunch Buddy program, which pairs responsible, caring adults from the community with kids who need a dependable grown-up friend. Sponsorship opportunities for the Hough Hoedown are still available; contact Jill Campbell at 360-992-7060 or jcampbell@houghfoundation.org.
