September in Seattle is full of events for the remaining days of summer. School may be starting, but there are still lots of fun things to do. Labor Day Weekend is the big summer finale, with <strong>Bumbershoot</strong> being the big event. The Washington State Fair, (formerly the Puyallup Fair), takes place in September as well.

It's also time for blackberries in the Pacific Northwest. They grow like weeds everywhere, and you can pick them to your heart's content. I always pick enough to make a pie every week and enough extra to fill up my freezer for the winter. And yes, we do have a festival in honor of them - the Bremerton Blackberry Festival.
