World Dance Party Returns
Do not miss “World Dance Party” coming to you on Friday, June 15th from 6-9pm at the Lake City Community Center. There is nothing else like it in the neighborhood. Bring a dish to share if you like but be sure to bring your dancing shoes as we will be treated to demonstrations of dances from around the world. Kid friendly and super fun!
Great Lineup – 2018Lake City Mini Park
LCFF is thrilled to bring back our 4th Annual “Music in the Mini Park”. This series funded in part through the City’s “Put Arts in the Park” initiative continues to attract great music and performers. While the venue may be a challenge, it is always inspiring to see people come out for these free concerts and watch as thousands of commuters realize that “Something is happening in Lake City”. Our sound wizard, Monica Sweet will be back in action and a big thank you to the Lake City Arts and Culture Committee member, Debbie Palmer, for creating the line-up. Don’t miss it!
