Go Around the World & Back at Third Place Commons

Tuesday, July 4, 2017

Explore the world from the comfort of your favorite neighborhood hangout this month at Third Place Commons. The tour starts off this Friday, July 7th at 7:30pm with a musical road trip across the American landscape with Cosmo’s Dream. This fun and lively folk/country trio will keep you charmed with their upbeat and original “tales of foggy-mountain megamalls, rising rivers, grandmas online, beautiful beer, and more.”

Cosmo’s Dream appears as part of the Sounds of the Season folk, country, and Americana music series, which continues all summer on the first Friday of each month through September. It continues on August 4th with the Joy Mills Band and wraps up on September 1st with local favorites the Ian McFeron Band.

Then on Friday, July 14th, hop over to France for an evening with Delilah Beacoup and Bissou and their French cabaret style performance in honor of Bastille Day. Dancer-friendly and full of surprises, enjoy a fun twist on weekend music complete with costumes and musical variety ranging from French torch songs to American standards.

The very next day, on July 15th, it’s off to Hawaii for Melelani Hula Studio's 15th Annual Hō`ike. Don your favorite lei, Hawaiian shirt, or flip flops and head to the Commons at 3pm for `O Hawai`i: Dances of the Islands, a colorful and beautiful celebration of island life and culture.

Sunday, July 16th tour around the world of creative arts at Crafts Day at the Lake Forest Park Farmers Market, from 10am to 3pm at the corner of Bothell Way NE and Ballinger Way NE. Yummy, fresh, local food plus all the jewelry, fabric arts, garden art, and other handicrafts you can shake a stick at will be on offer for this popular annual event.

Finally, at the very end of the month, land right back here in Washington to explore one of the biggest events in the state’s history when LFP READS takes the stage with Steve Olson, author of this year’s READS selection, Eruption: The Untold Story of Mount St. Helens. Co-presented by the City of LFP Library Advisory Committee, Friends of the Shoreline, Richmond Beach, and Lake Forest Park Libraries, and Third Place Books, a great month of reading will culminate on Monday, July 31st at 7pm on the Third Place Commons stage.

Of course, the Commons will also be busy with all your other favorite activities throughout the month including live music every Friday and Saturday night, from swing and jazz to blues and soul. And events at Third Place Commons are always free and open to everyone, so check the online calendar and join the fun!

Third Place Commons is a community-supported, 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to creating real community in real space. It is located at 17171 Bothell Way NE in Lake Forest Park Town Center.
