SO much is going on this weekend in Coupeville, and the weather at present is so lovely it doesn't matter that things are a bit sleepy mid-week.
This weekend is the Farm Tour, and Sarah of Lavender Wind Farm will have a stop at her new downtown Coupeville location, Linda and Val will be showing off Rosehip Farm on Fort Casey Road, and Kim & Jerry of Mile Post 19 Farm will be open selling their raspberry products, as just a few of the great offerings.
Tour de Whidbey will be bringing lots of cyclists for a fall ride with amazing scenery, and the Kite Festival held at Camp Casey will delight young and old alike.
A new event, on the heels of last weekend's Art of the Boat Festival, is the Oysterfest. Hooking on to the Oyster Run that has hundreds of leather-clad motorcyclists cruising to stops in Conway, Edison, Anacortes and the like, Front Street Grill, Penn Cove Shellfish, the Coupeville Chamber, Coupe's Last Stand (for those who prefer brats to bivalves), will be working hard on Sunday from 11 to 5 to bring music, motorcyles and oysters into the spotlight. Saturday night is a special dinner and music at the Rec Hall at Alexander and Coveland, tickets available at the Chamber offices, bayleaf, and at the door, $35 per person.
So, lots of reasons to be out and about in Coupeville this weekend!
Whatever you do, be sure to stop and enjoy the last of the floral season at one of our sweet roadside "honor" stands. Dahlias and sunflowers are still going strong, but the nip of fall in just around the corner. Of course maybe I'll just bump into you and give you a bouquet! Great weekend to check out the Farmer's Market, too, Saturday in Coupeville, from 10-3.
Enjoy the coming weekend!
