Weather cooperates for Swingin' Summer Eve

The Sunshine Junkies were the star of the show

The Shoreline - Lake Forest Park Arts Council and the City of Shoreline held their first annual summer party on Wednesday, July 20 in Cromwell Park, and managed to score the only nice evening of the week.

It might have been the influence of the band - a roots / rock band called "Sunshine Junkies". Or perhaps it was karmic balance for 2014 when it rained so much that the park flooded (i.e. retained surface water the way it was designed to) and the whole event had to be cancelled.

Swingin' Summer Eve is also the home of the Council of Neighborhoods annual used books sale. Seven neighborhoods collected books, CDs, and DVDs and sold them at very affordable prices. It wasn't unusual to see people walking away with grocery bags full of bargains.

 And the Arts Council reminded people that additional funds means additional programming.

 For the kids, there were food trucks and the giant inflatable slide.

It was a pleasant evening in the park and everyone appeared to be having a good time. The event is usually held on the third Wednesday in July, so mark your calendars and watch this space for next year's event.
