LACEY COMMUNITY MARKET OPENS FOR 2011 SEASON
LACEY, WA, July, 1, 2011: Summer 2011 marks the 8th season the City of Lacey will host a traditional open air market at Huntamer Park. This year, the Lacey Community Market will be held the second Saturday of each month—July 9, August 13, and September 10 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
The Lacey Community Market offers a bounty of traditional market items including seasonal produce and fresh-cut flowers, breads, honey, and locally-made and harvested foods. You will also find crafts, hand-made jewelry, furniture, antiques, collectibles, forgotten treasures, refreshments and local cuisine (i.e., barbeque, ethnic foods, and many other delicious treats). Nearly 90 vendors are expected to line the streets for a distinct shopping experience.
“Home and Garden Day”— with a wide array of home and garden vendors and live music— kicks off the market season on July 9. Get answers to your gardening questions from expert gardener and author Marianne Binetti, on stage at 10:30 a.m. Following her presentation, Marianne will be available in the market booth for one-on-one gardening consultations. Experience the big-band sounds of The Johnny Lewis Band—on stage from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. with swing dancing by USA Dance Olympia. Enjoy the jump swing sounds of 7 on 7, from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
On August 13, come to the market for “Family Day.” You won't want to miss performances by the River Ridge Taiko Drummers, Bubbleman, Crow Drummers, and other local dance troupes. Plus, the kids will stay entertained with a Bounce House, Tumble Bus, and an array of games and activities.
Wrap up the 2011 season on September 10 “Pet Day” with activities, demonstrations, vendors, and services tailored to people and pets. Visitors to the market will enjoy bluegrass music by the Grays Harbor Banjo Band and Cricket by the Hearth—with low-cost pet microchip services, a pet look-alike contest, and dog agility demonstrations.
