The first weekend in August is for summer festivals in the Pacific Northwest. We stopped at a few in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho and Seafair in Seattle, Washington.

Coeur d’Alene (CDA) is a cute town on a picturesque lake in the northern Idaho panhandle. Three distinct markets all happen on the same weekend (the first weekend in August) and they're amazing!

Coeur d'Alene August Festivals:
Art on the Green: Artists, performers, musicians, and artisans showcase their handmade/homemade masterpieces. This is where we bought the cup in the video (at 0:34). See more here:

Taste of Coeur D’Alene: Beer garden, tons of food vendors and food trucks. See more here:

Coeur d’Alene Street Fair: Over 400 vendors selling pretty much everything you can think of. It goes for 4 or 5 blocks. See more here:

In Seattle on the same weekend (the first weekend in August), every neighborhood celebrates Seafair with local events, plus a few citywide events too. We stopped at an event in Magnolia in northwest Seattle. There are tons of really cool events, from street fairs to Navy Blue Angels flyovers, to boat shows and stunts. It's fun and we'll do a full video of it sometime. See more here:

We love street fairs, art, and food, so this was a fun video to make. Thanks so much for joining us on our road trip! Not much farther until we reach 10,000 miles!

What's going on here?

We quit our jobs, left New York City, bought a car, and decided to spend the summer driving around the US. The plan is to hit at least 35 states and cover more than 10,000 miles. Watch from the beginning here:
