Summer in Gig Harbor brings a variety of outdoor family fun. Enjoy movies and live music in Skansie Brother’s Park each week. The first full weekend in June is the annual Maritime Gig weekend complete with parade, car show and fun run as well as a carnival atmosphere for kids, and demonstrations from local artists, dancers and musicians. Summer is prime time for paddleboarding and kayaking as well as exploring the vast local trail systems by foot or bike. Beautiful golf courses are best enjoyed during summer, and save room for food and drink festivals and tasting events. Enjoy patio and waterfront dining and sample regional wine and beer.
