LACEY COMMUNITY MARKET OPENS FOR 2010 SEASON
LACEY, WA, June 23, 2010: Summer 2010 marks the 7th 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 10, August 14, and September 11 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, locally-made and harvested foods, honey, and seafood. You will also find crafts, hand-made jewelry, antiques, collectibles, forgotten treasures, refreshments and local cuisine (i.e., barbeque, spring rolls, and many other delicious treats). Nearly 90 vendors are expected to line the streets for a distinct shopping experience.
“Home and Garden Day”—featuring a wide array of home and garden vendors and live music— kicks off the market season on July 10. Experience the big-band sounds of The Johnny Lewis Band—on stage from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. with swing dancing by USA Dance Olympia, and a guest appearance by expert gardener and author Marianne Binetti.
On August 14, come to the market for “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.
Wrap up the 2010 season on September 11 with “Family Day.” You won't want to miss singing by Forever Young, a drum performance and drum circle by Planet Percussion, dance exhibitions, balloons, and a Tumble Bus for the little ones.
You’ll find it all at the Lacey Community Market, located at beautiful Huntamer Park, just off College Street SE at 7th Avenue SE in Lacey. For more information, visit www.ci.lacey.wa.us or call Sharon Kagy, market manager, at (360) 791-7632.
