Well, January just flew by, didn’t it? Tons of snow: check. Wind and rain: check. Every day (thankfully!) getting a smidge longer: check. We’re grateful for this beautiful corner of the country we call home—and equally appreciative that there are always fantastic events and activities happening across Whatcom County that keep us connected to each other and to the area. Check out a few highlights below for the weekend of January 31 through February 2, and access our full events calendar here.
