Summer is just around the corner – can you feel/smell/taste it yet? One sure indicator – aside from the increasing pollen count – is that the City of Burien announced the lineup for its FREE 2015 ‘Music in the Park’ summer concert series, to be held on Wednesday nights at North SeaTac Park starting July 15, and on Thursday nights at Lake Burien Park starting July 9. As usual, The B-Town Blog/South King Media will be a sponsor of these great events, so be sure to mark your calendars!
