The Leschi Community Council puts on some of the neighborhood’s best events. Their series of concerts at Flo Ware Park last year were terrific.
They’ve got another big one planned for tomorrow in the historic Leschi Park along Lake Washington, with their Leschi Park Arts & Crafts Fair, scheduled from 11am to 6pm.
They’ll have live music from two bands:
- Bakra Bata – The leaders of the steel drum band lived just a few blocks from Leschi Park until they were forced out by a SWAT operation. They’re performing for free in Leschi to thank the community for all of the support during the last year. Bakra Bata will perform at noon, and click here for a video of their performance at HONK!
- Greenwood Concert Band – The more than 50 musicians in the band reportedly made a big splash at last year’s Leschi Park Centennial celebration. They take the stage at 2:30pm.
The event will also have neighborhood artists and other vendors displaying their work.
It all starts at 11am at the park at 201 Lakeside Avenue.
