Cool Off Tonight With Free Sprinklers, Pet Licenses & Music By “Chasing Jane”
With the recent record-breaking (yet sudden) heat wave, folks throughout the area are trying to find creative ways to stay cool. One way to really stay and “be cool” is to go to tonight’s FREE Music & Movies in the Park at Lake Burien Memorial Park, starting at 6:30pm.
According to Burien Parks’ Gina Kallman:
To help with the warm weather we will also be turning on sprinklers in a corner of Lake Burien School Park from 3-4pm and 7-8pm.
We will also have ice cream for purchase from Fult Tilt’s ice cream bike, and complimentary water and soda from Burien Toyota…should be a good night!
Also, the city of Burien will be “giving away” pet licenses at tonight’s show, where you can also meet our new Animal Care & Control Manager:
Dogs on leash are welcome at the official kick off event, July 8, 6:15 p.m. before the Music in the Park concert at Lake Burien School Park, SW 148th St. and 16th Ave. SW.
Free licenses will be available.
Dr. Leslie Kasper, DVM, the new director of Burien Animal Care and Control, will be on hand to answer questions.
Tonight’s concert will feature Chasing Jane, “new Americana pop music with a cutting edge,” or as they say on their website:
Chelsi and DaLona front the band, a sister act full of charisma. Their vocals are solid and mesmerizing, and the chemistry with their audiences refined. The two have toured in other bands and both been involved in the music industry professionally in various forms for several years. They have shared stages with multiple reputable artists and played on stages across the nation.
There is just so much to be taken in when seeing Chasing Jane live. It’s a full seven piece band featuring multiple talented musicians, each member playing several instruments from mandolin to lap steel. There are pianos, electric guitars, harmonicas, shaker, and banjos weaving their way through the tunes as well. There are also harmonies cleverly ghosting their way in from the edges of every phrase keeping you on your toes waiting for more. No moment is dull. Even the ballads were written with such passion that you are just hanging on to every word and phrase.
Here’s a video of ’em in action at the Puyallup Fair:
