May is a pretty busy month for local events and of course Mother’s Day, May Day and Memorial Day! Here’s a quick list of a few things to do and a couple ideas for brunch stops!
May 1st ~ May Day ~ It marks the half way point between spring and summer. The tradition is to make a pretty paper basket, fill it with flowers and hang it on someone’s door. This celebration actually dates back to the 19th century when they would hang the basket after dark, knock on the door and run away.
May 4th all day ~ Tour de Cure at Chateau Ste. Michelle. Ride, run, walk for Diabetes. You can register online until May 3rd by going to their website. http://main.diabetes.org/site/TR/TourdeCure/TourAdmin?fr_id=12687&pg=entry
May 4th 11am -1pm ~ Spring Tree Walking Tour. Celebrate spring with a guided walking tour of beautiful Snohomish heritage trees through the Historic District! No charge to participate. http://ci.snohomish.wa.us/Calendar.aspx?EID=1318&month=5&year=2019&day=30&calType=0
May 11th 5pm – 8pm May 11th ~ Mill Creek Spring Wine Walk in Town Center. https://seattleuncorked.com/event/mill-creek-spring-wine-walk-may-12/
May 19th 9am – 4pm ~ Sky Valley Motorcycle Show. In downtown Snohomish. Hmmm Probably where I will be.
May 27th – 11am – 12pm ~ Memorial Day Parade in Mill Creek Town Center https://www.evensi.us/memorial-day-parade-mill-creek-town-center/305208413
Mother’s Day Brunch ~ We have been to many places for brunch including Ivar’s Downtown, Embassy Suites, Cabbage Patch, Anthony’s and Emory’s. Ivar’s downtown with no doubt is top on my list but it is expensive, in Seattle and traffic is a lot to deal with on Mother’s Day.
Last year after brunch we went to Waverly Beach Park in Kirkland and we all decided that this year instead of going to a restaurant, we would pack brunch and go back, weather permitting. It was fun and a change from the norm.
See you next time…happy May!
