A Rockin’ Good Time

Massy Ferguson Plays at the After Party

Lynwood Center, a small business and residential area on the south end of the island, has undergone a major facelift in the past few years, and is now as lively as ever.  New restaurants and apartments occupy the space, and live concerts and the Sunday farmers’ market have been drawing folks like never before.  This Saturday, September 14th, the fun continues with what promises to be a fantastic block party at the sixth annual Taste of Lynwood.

Concerts, food, games, a beer garden…the Taste of Lynwood will have it all, and admission is free!  The party begins at 8 a.m. and will long after the sun goes down at 11 p.m.

Live music will begin at 11:45 a.m. and will continue on the main stage until 8.  Johnny Bregar, a local artist, will kick everything off.  He will be followed by The Paperboys and then Leroy Bell and His Only Friends.  After 8 p.m., all those 21 and over are invited to hit up the Treehouse Café Stage to hear Missy Ferguson.

In addition to live music, food and craft vendors will be open for all to enjoy.  This year also marks the first ever Classic Car Show at the Taste of Lynwood.  And if you’re feeling particularly athletic and energized, take part in the Baker Hill Fitness Challenge.  The challenge includes running up Baker Hill, burpees, squats, and a surprise event before running back down the hill.  If you’re like me, however, you’ll be more than happy to stay at the bottom of the hill and enjoy a beer at the beer garden.

For more information on the Taste of Lynwood (everything from band descriptions to directions), please visit the event website at www.tasteoflynwood.org.  Rain or shine (this is Washington, after all), the Taste of Lynwood promises a fun time for everyone!
