If you love good, ol' fashioned fun, make sure you head over to Thorp, Washington during the weekend of August 5, 6 and 7th for their annual Summerfest! For two days (and a limited breakfast on Sunday for those who stay over) you'll enjoy art, music, beer, floating the river, studio tours, and good times.
As PUNCH Gallery describes it, "It's a casual affair ... think of it as a three-day party with your artsy, yet hillbilly, cousins on the farm."
If you want to float the river (and who wouldn't want to float it?), you have to sign up by July 25th so they can make arrangements. "The cost for the river float is $20 which includes the raft, transportation up the river, life vest, and paddles. R.S.V.P. and prepayment is required." PUNCH (and the other Thorp artists) are some of the nicest, most hospitable folks around and this will be a blast!
