Day 56 – 365 Things to do in Bellingham, WA –Children’s Art Walk

Day 56 – Tonight is the Children’s art Walk. I think it’s children’s art (I saw some great kids drawings on display, pictures of President Obama and a kid’s tribute to Van Gogh)or is it just children walking around downtown and visiting galleries serving milk and cookies instead of wine and cheese.

Haggen RaceTomorrow is the Haggen to Haggen,  5K event, a fun annual event for runners and walkers alike. In recent years it has  attracted over 1,000 participants , about evenly divided between runners and walkers. Haggen to Haggen is a relatively fast course that winds through several neighborhoods, including downtown Bellingham.

It begins at Sehome Haggens and ends at Meridian Haggens. Free busses will be available to shuttle participants back to the start. The first two miles involve level and descending terrain, including an exciting run through downtown Bellingham on Holly Street. But runners and walkers need to save a little something in their tanks for the final mile since there is a slight uphill grade to test their endurance. Prizes are awarded to the first three male and female RUN finishers. Walkers (noncompetitive) start at 8:00 am and Runners start at 8:30 am

For the gardeners among you there is a Native Flora Fair: 10am-4pm, Saturday at the Fairhaven Village Green and a  Master Gardeners Plant Sale: 9am-2pm, Saturday at Hovander Homestead Park in Ferndale.
