Sequim Lavender Festival returns in July

Sequim is known as the "Lavender Capital of North America" because of its lavender fields and one of the best places in the country to grow the fragrant herb. 

Every third weekend of July, the Clallam County city has become a popular destination for tourists and to celebrate all things lavender during the Sequim Lavender Festival.
