What’s on this weekend

This weekend’s highlights include the 3rd anniversary sale at Ballard Reuse, and the Baker Park open house for residents to weigh in on expansion plans. Lots of live music, and with the burn ban lifted, plenty of opportunities for beach bonfires and backyard barbecues. As always, if you have any events to share with the community, email us at tips@myballard.com.

Have a great weekend everyone!
