With the Memorial Day weekend already underway for many Sammamish residents, Sammamish Patch offers up our easy way to find things to do.
Some events might already be listed. But this is a good, one-stop (rather, um, one click) way to get what you need.
So, let's get going - and thank you from Sammamish Patch to those who have served in the U.S. military since the country began.
Memorial Day Weekend events:
Northwest Folklife Festival: It's one of the biggest music and arts events in Seattle. It started Friday at 11 a.m. and goes through Monday. It's at the Seattle Center.
High School Soccer Part I: Games are on. Really. And these games for the boys are the state semifinals. Eastlake High School and Skyline High School will play Friday at 6 and 8 p.m., respectively, at Harry Lang Stadium in Tacoma.
High School Soccer Part II (UPDATED): Sammamish soccer fans might want to make the trek to Harry Lang Stadium in Tacoma on Saturday, too. and will play in the Class 4A state championship at 4 p.m.
On Friday, Eastlake beat Kentwood (2-1) and Skyline was victorious over Stadium (3-2), Sammamish Patch contributing sports writer Scott Whittum reported.
Teen Mic Night at Old Fire House Teen Center: For young people ages 13 to 18 years old, come on out at 7 p.m. Bring your creativity: Songs, poems, spoken word narratives.
Track Bicycle Racing at Marymoor: The season is underway. If the weather is good, riders will be circling the track at 7 p.m. at the park near Redmond. Keep an eye out for the break aways.
High School State Track and Field Competition: It's underway - and continues through Saturday at Mount Tahoma High School in Tacoma. Among the students who are competing: Athletes from Skyline High School.
On Friday, Skyline High School's Kasen Williams broke the state record in triple jump with a jump of 50 feet 9.75 inches, Patch.com sports editor Mike Baldwin reported.
The Museum of Flight: There will be aviation activities in Seattle and aircraft on display, including a B-17 bomber. The World War II-era plane was born in Seattle. On Saturday, there will be vintage warplanes, too.
Memorial Day Ceremony in Issaquah: On Monday at 10 a.m., join veterans and others and pay your respects to those who have served in the U.S. military. VFW 3436 is sponsoring the service at Hillside Cemetery.
House Hunt: Homes in Sammamish are for sale. These are some that will be open this weekend to tour.
Get Out: This is our regular weekend planner. We like to think it was inspired by how Elaine Benes from Seinfeld could state those words. It's chock-full of good stuff, as the saying goes. A few items are on One Click, too. But, ahem, there are events in Redmond in which beer will be served. It is Seattle Beer Week. Also, gardener Ciscoe Morris will speak in Woodinville on Saturday. And: Movies in Kirkland!
Play Date: Looking for family activities this weekend? We have them. On Monday, Kidz Bounce in the Preston Industrial Park will be open for play.
Memorial Day Closures: If you need a list of what's open and what's closed in the Sammamish area on Monday, Sammamish Patch has a list.
