Parade-the-Circle THIS Saturday 6.14 Noon!

THIS Saturday, June 14th is Parade the Circle. See listing below for a map that mark's our usual viewing spot [between Juniper and Hazel, in front of CIM.]

Word has it that Jack Flotte can be seen bangin' and a wailin' (and playing, too!) astride the steel drum float towards the end. Get there early (10:30?) since they always start precisely at noon. Hope to see you.

Some of my best pictures from last year's parade can be found here.

Doug Wood at Open Air Market Square Sat. 6.14

From Doug Wood: 'It's that time of year again... a chance to perform at one of my favorite outdoor venues. It's a great, laid back venue... lots of vendors plugging their art and crafts, and a chance to just hang out in a nice place.

Saturday, June 14
Open Air Market Square
(Across from the West Side Market on the corner of W.25th and Lorain.)

Hope to see everyone this Saturday!
