Shiver Your Way Into Summer Solstice Tonight At 10:45pm
Summer officially begins tonight (Sat. June 20th) at 10:45pm PDT, with Sunday considered the “first day of summer” as well as the longest day and shortest night of the year.
Of course, it’d be nice if the weather gods would cooperate, but instead of basking in the heat of a new summer’s day, we’ll all be shivering as temps strain to reach 60 degrees, with a 60% chance of rain Sunday, which of course is the final day of Burien’s annual Strawberry & Arts Festival, where we have a booth near the Skate Park (come on by and enter our contest to win one of 38 local prizes valued at over $2,100!).
But we’re all rugged Northwesterners aren’t we, and we’re not going to let a little cold or dampness stop us from having fun, so strip off your shirts, show off some skin and relish in the start of another fine Summer Solstice Day (and if you’re planning on some kind of unusual pagan ritual this weekend, be sure to send us pics)!
