February 2015 Events & Happenings

2015JanFebEvents Web ApIt may say winter on your calendar but it has been spring-like in La Conner! Plan your mid-winter getaway with our February 2015 Events and Happenings.

Whether for a fun day trip or a romantic overnight excursion – La Conner is just the ticket for a February getaway in 2015. We’ve have lots of fun things to do and see – take an “urban” hike through the village, shop for some Valentine’s Day treats and treasures, spend a relaxing mini vacation during the President’s Day holiday. The possibilities are endless…

The snow geese and trumpeter swans make the Skagit Valley their winter home. Plan a day trip or a getaway to view these magnificent birds. Stop by the visitor information center for viewing maps and identification cards.

Ready, get set, go! The La Conner Daffodil Festival will take place the entire month of March! Start planning now.
