Local Events You Won’t Want to Miss!

L ooking for a fresh way to celebrate spring? If you’re fed up with being stuck because of all the snow and rain outside, here are a few great events to get you out and about this month. Marathon Do you enjoy beautiful sights and getting active? The Whidbey Island Marathon will be perfect for you! The run is a great way to get out of the hustle and bustle of city life, enjoy breathtaking views, and get a good workout. It’s a fun and exciting event that nearly anyone can participate in! There will be two marathons. The half marathon doesn’t have an age limit, and anyone older than 16 can participate in the full marathon. The full marathon will start at 7 a.m. at Pass Lake and finish at Bayshore Drive Waterfront. All other races will be in downtown Oak Harbor starting at the same time. Come enjoy the sights and a day of running!

Holland Happening

From April 26–29, an international festival will take place in our very own Oak Harbor. The Holland Happening celebrates those who have Dutch heritage. There will be a parade and a carnival in which people of all ages can participate. Look forward to wooden shoe races and wonderful food. The three-day event will open at 4 p.m. on Thursday and Friday, 8 a.m. on Saturday, and 10 a.m. on Sunday. Tickets to enter the carnival will be $25 until April 25, and $30 at the door for all-day passes.

Whether you’re Dutch or not, it will be a great weekend to have some fun!

Greenbank Meerkerk Gardens

Throughout April, Meerkerk Gardens will be open for the public to enjoy the peak blooming season. With 10 acres of beautifully displayed gardens, it will be a great chance to get out and enjoy nature and the steadily warming weather. While the garden is open nearly every day of the year, the rhododendron collection only blooms once a year. For only $5, you can see these gorgeous flowers at the height of their glory this April.
