We’re in the final stretch of summer, and if you haven’t checked all your summertime fun off your to-do list, now’s the time!
One activity to tackle right away: Stand-up paddleboard yoga. There’s nothing quite like striking a yoga pose while atop a paddleboard on Whiskeytown Lake.
Lots of longtime locals will confess that they’ve never been to Castle Crags State Park, and there’s no time like the present to pack a picnic, head north and explore the rugged slopes that are rich in history and beauty.
We’ve got a host of tips for refreshing your wardrobe for fall. Take inventory of which staples are already in your closet, treasure-hunt for the rest and put together a fresh look for fall.
Meanwhile, you can learn more about the search for extraterrestrials that’s happening right in our own backyard at the Hat Creek Radio Observatory. This fascinating spot is open to the public on weekdays. Or check out Idea Fab Labs in Chico, where do-it-yourselfers immerse themselves in “learning zones” that focus on electronics, audio production, screen printing, woodworking and much more.
We’ll also introduce you to the fabulous Jake Mangas, whose boundless energy, can-do attitude and unwavering love for the North State is breathing new life into the Redding Chamber of Commerce.
Join us for Enjoy Movies in the Park—we’ll be at Enterprise Community Park every Friday night in August, and at Red Bluff City Park on Aug. 27. The film starts at dusk, so bring your friends, your blankets, some snacks and join the fun.
It’s the last hurrah for summer – enjoy!
