Can you feel it? Summer is right around the corner! We don’t know about you, but here at Island Herb, Whidbey Island’s best cannabis shop, we’re so ready for it! Memorial Day weekend, the gateway to summer, is almost here and while it’s a great long weekend to kick back, relax, and dream of warmer times. It’s also a weekend for remembering those who have given everything to protect our freedoms and make our country safer. Here are a few ways to enjoy the long weekend, including a run/walk you can do with your furry best friend!

Remember the Fallen

For the last forty years, Coupeville has thrown a Memorial Day Parade for the men and women who have died in service to our country. The parade includes floats, local politicians, antique cars, and the Grand Marshal is Sal Rizzo, a central-Whidbey resident, and veteran who served in the Marine Corps. This year’s event will be held on Sunday, May 27th from 11am-2pm. The festivities include the parade, a remembrance ceremony, and a free picnic in Coupeville Town Park.

Get Ready to Run (or to Cheer the Runners On!)

Bring the whole family (leashed dogs included) to the seventh annual Pawz by the Sea 5k and 10k Run/Walk, and Kids Fun Run event held along 2nd Street in Langley, Washington. The fun kicks off at 9 am on Monday, May 28th and benefits Happy Hounds 4H Club and Good Cheer Pet Food Bank. Remember, if the 21+ members of your family need some help recovering from the race, topicals can help! Be sure to check out our varied topical selections, including gels, lotions, and bath bombs.
