The LoCO Lowdown | Lost Coast Outpost | Humboldt County

SATURDAY LOWDOWN: Eureka is Your Playground

Well, it’s Saturday and Eureka is slated to reach the scorching mid-60°s. Perhaps you should get out (and play). Oh look! It just so happens that it is Get Out and Play Day, the City of Eureka’s annual day to demand its citizenry pry themselves from their Playstations and, I dunno, move around for chrissakes. There are events and activities taking place all over Eureka, among them an Old Town street fair, a Sequoia Park community barbecue, zoo discounts, free Madaket rides, a disc golf tournament and celebrity-led Zumba, hey hey.

How about this: Peruse this handy map so you can better visualize all the Get Out and Play Day joy at your fingertips this fine day. (Maps > words.) If nothing listed there grabs you — picky! — then you can still scroll your Lowdown listings below for more Saturday wow.
