Today’s Lowdown

Is it just us or was this the week summer actually ended? LoCO has spent the week putting on a jacket and thus urges you to get out there and enjoy what little the sun has left to give.  

You’ll note a wealth of countywide community gatherings this Humboldt Saturday: The good citizens of Eureka will gather at Sequoia Park for the second annual Eureka Block Party; Dune defenders will get their sip on at the Humboldt Coastal Nature Center during the annual Wine by the Sea; the Mateel Community Center hosts the annual Humboldt Hills Hoedown headlined by the ever-popular Shook Twins (remember how much you like them in the clip above).

More joy can be found south of here.
