7/13 Full Moon Fire Dancers & Drum Jam, w/picnic dinner FREE

¼ mile south of the Foster Ave Turf Fields on the lakefront. Lakefront jams are NOT! at Foster Ave Beach, they are south of the beach, on the east side of the lakefront trail, in the big field between the soccer goal and the chicken wire fence.

"FULL MOON FIRE DANCING & DRUM JAM"
Come out and enjoy the Full Moon Festival Fire Jam! This exciting free monthly
event is held from 6p-10p at the lakefront near Foster Ave Park 5050 N. Simonds Dr.(between Lawrence Ave & Foster Ave), on the grass on the west side of the street. 1/2 mile from the beach. Limited free street parking on Simonds Dr. available, or a metered pay lot at Foster.

The entertainment consists of a group of Fire Dancers and Percussionists. Anybody
that brings an instrument can join in! Women and men dance and spin, juggle, or hula hoop with fire to tribal drumbeats played by percussionists. Performance starts at sunset(around 7:30p) The organizer for the Fire Jam pyrotechnic group has requested that due to heat and smoke, grills be kept away from where people are sitting. So this time we will bring picnic foods that are already prepared(sandwiches, chips, salads, chicken, fruit, dessert, etc.) This way everyone can better enjoy the event, and not be stuck watching the grill.

It's fun for people of all ages, and is family friendly. Alcohol is discouraged, glass bottles are not allowed(so bring your favorite "adult" beverages in an unmarked water, pop, or juice bottle) We will have a "special" punch to share, and bring a picnic style dinner for yourself or to share, enough for 3 or 4 people.This is a really fantastic event, don't miss it. Bring a lawn chair if you like, or just sit on our blanket.

      This event is roughly a block south of Foster Av. Ignore your GPS that tells you to exit LSD at Lawrence or Wilson!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
