Tri-Cities Entertainment

Our community has some great entertainment and fun things to do!

The last couple of weeks included a wonderful production featuring the great music of Stevie Haberman in Club 88. Our community is so lucky to have such a talented writer/musician live in our area! The script by Ginny Quinley, John Tuttle, and the cast was wonderful.

The great Columbia Crest winery had its semi-annual case sale and we attended to get some of that awesome Washington State wine at a great price. The winery at Paterson is an amazing place to visit and pick up some great wine and is just a short drive from the Tri-Cities!


We also were treated to a Richland Players production of On Golden Pond. This was one of the best sets I have ever seen in a local production and was the play was excellent!

There are lots of things to do in our great community!
