Swingin' Summer Eve, held Wednesday evening July 19, 2017 at Cromwell Park, is one of those mellow summer evening events that have enough things to do to be entertaining, but not so action packed as to be frenetic.


You can see it all in a short time and then chill out.

Several hundred people did just that, lounging on the grassy hillside and listening to Beatles tribute band Creme Tangerine play. The little children ran in happy circles, chasing each other and no one was irritated by the noise.


Book lovers have learned to mark this event on their calendar for the Council of Neighborhoods used book sale. Always many children's books, and readable summer fare. The Council provides grocery bags and shoppers fill them up.

The weather was perfect (how often can you say that in the Northwest?)


The fire department was there with a truck to delight the children. There were information booths and a giant inflatable slide.

Food so you can have dinner there. Always treats for the kids.

A lovely party, co sponsored by the Shoreline - Lake Forest Park Arts Council and the City of Shoreline.
