Every day I'm reminded of why I love living in Woodinville, and what a great place it's been to raise our family — especially when I hear the news about heat waves across the country. But along with our beautiful weather and great outdoors, it's the community spirit that's made it feel like home, living on Hollywood Hill the past 22 years. One of those community events is Celebrate Woodinville's Summer Concerts in the Park series, which kicks off this Wednesday night at 7pm with Carrie Clark and the Lonesome Lovers. It's a free evening of family-friendly music at Wilmot Gateway Park, set to take place the next four Wednesdays. You can pack a picnic or buy dinner from a variety of local restaurants that will be set up there, and also enjoy a wine garden hosted by Woodinville Wine Country wineries. We definitely do have reason to celebrate Woodinville…it's a great place to live!
