This weekend is Tour de Terrace, Mountlake Terrace’s largest community event of the year. Read our previous post for a brief background. Festivities kick off around 4 PM on Friday and go through Sunday afternoon. The general festival hours are:
Friday, July 24:� 1 PM – 11 PM
Saturday, July 25: 8 AM – 11 PM

See the schedule below for a more detailed look at what will be going on when.
In addition to all the scheduled events below, there will be carnival rides and games, over 50 fun arts and crafts vendors and a beer garden featuring Ellersick microbrews. If you haven’t tried Ellersick’s beer, you should definitely stop by the beer garden. They brew some of the best beer in the Seattle area and especially the north end.
Vendor hours of operation are:

Saturday, July 25: 10 AM – 9 PM

There will be no fireworks show this year but it has been replaced with the Womanipura fire dancing performance Saturday evening.
Over 25,000 people attend Tour de Terrace every year (that’s more than the entire population of Mountlake Terrace!) and we hope you’re one of them. The festival is free with exception of the pancake breakfast and the carnival. I’ll try to make it to as many events as I can and will be twittering from @MLTnews.
