Three Great Galentine’s Day Activities to Enjoy with your Girl Gang

Posted by Cascade Village

Since its debut on Parks and Recreation in 2010 (by everyone’s favorite character, Leslie Knope,) Galentine’s Day has become a popular way to celebrate a special kind of love: the special bond that comes from amazing friendships. So, to help you celebrate this unofficial holiday on February 13th, here are three Galentine’s Day activities to try out. Remember, it’s all about bringing the spirit of what Leslie liked to call “ladies celebrating ladies.”

Three Galentine’s Day Activities and Where to Get the Supplies

It is tradition to start your Galentine’s Day off with brunch. So, by all means, indulge in some ceremonial waffles—or whatever else you love for breakfast. But why should the fun stop there? 

We wanted to share a few additional ways you can celebrate with friends to keep the festivities going all day long. If you’ve never celebrated Galentine’s Day before, no worries! We’re sharing the different shops at CVSC where you can find supplies for these unique Galentine’s Day activities. 

Enjoy a Pamper Session Together

There’s no better way to bring out your inner goddess than by indulging in a little pamper session. At Cascade Village Shopping Center, we have quite a few ways for you and your friends to pamper yourself. 

Start by getting your nails done at Pretty Nails. Then try out a few unique manifestation temporary tattoos from Conscious Ink. You could even book back-to-back sessions at Lunchbox Wax. By the end of the day, you and your gal pals will be feeling refreshed and like royalty.  

Hit the Trails with Friends and Pets

Maybe your group isn’t really into the pampering and beauty rituals. That’s okay! There are still tons of great ways to enjoy time together. If your group is more into the fantastic outdoor scenery of Central Oregon, a day hike with your friends and their pups is the way to go.  

At CVSC, you can stock up on pet essentials for the hike, like water dishes, leashes, and treats at PetSmart. And if your hiking gear needs a refresh, you can find everything at Dick’s Sporting Goods.

Do a Home Makeover for a Friend In Need 

Maybe you have a super special friend in need of some extra care and attention this Galentine’s Day. If that’s the case, a home makeover is a great way to make them feel supported and cared for. 

You and your friends can stop by Bed Bath & Beyond, Best Buy, or World Market to pick up some decor and home essentials. You could even book a workshop for all your friends at Board and Bush to create some DIY signs for the new space. 

Stop By Cascade Village to Stock Up on Galentine’s Day Essentials
