Summertime in Sumner | Sumner Mayor Update

Every season in Sumner is special, but summer seems more so, maybe because our name practically is “summer.”

The following is written by Sumner Mayor Dave Enslow:

Every season in Sumner is special, but summer seems more so, maybe because our name practically is “summer.” (And most likely it is on half your magazine subscriptions!) It’s probably more because summer is when we really shine.

Events are now in full swing, giving you lots of opportunities to party in Sumner. The Arts Commission has Music Off Main every Friday night in July and Movies Off Mainevery Friday night in August. This Friday, the music of Johnny Cash will fill Heritage Park with Folsom Prism. The merchants of the Sumner Downtown Promotion Association have all things rhubarb ready to go for Rhubarb Days July 15-16, and it’s quite a line-up. See below for more information. If you have a classic car, be sure to sign up to show it off at Classy Chassis, coming up August 13, and our own Relay for Life is just around the corner with the City employees hosting the Golf for Life tournament on July 28 to raise money for our team. (There are still spots left for all the golfers out there—and even non-golfers—to join in.)

Aside from all of these events that get us walking, golfing, eating and socializing, even a “normal” summer evening seems like an event itself. People are out at twilight, strolling through neighborhoods while walking dogs or eating ice-cream cones…or both. Kids of all ages are playing in the parks until bedtime. Many of our restaurants offer beautiful outdoor dining, sometimes with live music, and it’s just a fun, more relaxed time to be out and about. Enjoy a beautiful summer in Sumner.
