If you’ve read my blog for very long, you know that summer is my favorite season here. How do I love the summer in Lake Oswego? Let me count the ways—boating on the lake, swimming at the swim park, fireworks on the lake, Lions Club 4th of July pancake breakfast, warm summer nights, out of town guests, Hot August Night, just to mention a few.

But one of the many things to love about Lake Oswego is that we have four seasons and for every summer lover, chances are you’ll find someone to sing the praises of the other three.

FALL. Changing colors. Homecoming parades. High school civil war games. Luscher Farm scarecrows. Harvest moonlit boat rides. Halloween festivities and neighborhoods that really get into it. Wine walk.

WINTER. Holiday tree lighting. Horse drawn wagon rides. Christmas ships parade. The chance that it might snow. Mt. Hood Meadows Ski Bus. Finding all kinds of excuses to cuddle up with a good book. Snow days. Being only 1 ½ hours away from a ski slope. Lake Oswego Reads.

SPRING. Blossoms. Tulips, azaleas and rhododendrons. Maher’s St. Patrick’s Day Festival. Lake Run. Village flower baskets first appear. Oswego Heritage Council Historic Home Tour. Farmer’s Market starts back up. Neighbors come out of their winter hibernation and start chatting over the fence again.

Give your favorite season in Lake Oswego a shout-out. Let’s hear what you love and why.
