In Imogene Inglet’s book, Lil’ Ol’ Lake City, the opening to her chapter on “Pioneer Days” starts with the following: “What keeps a tradition alive? People! And, in the case of Lake City, a community spirit that never dies.” Imogene goes on to talk about the beginnings of the “Lake City Summer Festival” that in 1947, became known as “Pioneer Days”.
It was Ethel and Albert Davis (for whom Albert Davis Park behind the Lake City Community Center is named) that started the tradition of the Salmon Bake in 1950 after taking it upon themselves to research methods of cooking salmon by traveling to salmon bakes around the region.
For over 70 years the Salmon Bake has gone on in Lake City as part of the community’s largest celebration. Imogene’s words continue to ring true as neighbors and community members come together, working hard to create a festival and parade that is reflective of our changing and growing Lake City.
Tonight – July 30th Lake City Future First and the Department of Seattle Parks and Recreation in partnership with the Lake City Young Leaders program bring you “World Dance Lessons”. Tonight we host Gansango, known to many in Lake City as one of our Community favorites bringing West African Drum and Dance to our neighborhood.
As part of the 4th Annual “Music in the Mini Park” concert series, LCFF presents this free concert with Honky Tonk Sweethearts- vintage country, western swing and rockabilly. Marc Bristol and his lovely wife Gaby are the Honky Tonk Sweethearts. They play vintage country music- Hank Williams, Buck Owens, Johnny Cash and many other pioneers of country music- and also a few of Marc’s own original songs that are in the vintage country style, as well as the occasional ’50s Rock ‘n’ Roll song. Bring your dance shoes!!
Please join the Seattle Parks Department and Lake City Future First as we present “World Dance Lessons” in Albert Davis Park on Monday nights until August 20th. In partnership with the Lake City Young Leaders Program this series gives you an opportunity to learn a new dance, brush up on your skills or just enjoy the performance.
