Lakewood Farmer's Market and Summer Nights are the Pavilion

Needs a location

It's time for the Farmer's Market to come back. Check out the unique products from vendors from the PNW. There will also be some food trucks as well. The Farmer's market will be in the parking lot in front of the Baseball fields that run along Steilacoom BLVD.

Around 6:30 pm, after you have gotten your fill of the vendors, come walk over to the Pavilion for the City of Lakewood Summer Night at the Pavilion concert Series. They are doing these for select nights in June, July, and August. The first in their concert series will be Afrodisiacs (disco/funk).

You will need to bring a folding chair or a blanket with you when you walk over to the pavilion.

4th of July BBQ at Connor's RSVP for address

Needs a location

Much like the Memorial Day BBQ, come over to Conor's house to enjoy a lot of good food and hilarious company. Afterwards, there will be a separate event for Fireworks viewing, hosted by Mac.

Please bring things to BBQ like hamburger patties, hot dogs, chicken, sausage, or impossible burgers. Remember the buns and other toppings! But DON'T BRING CONDIMENTS! You guys left yours from last time and I have them.... *** Also, remember to bring a side along with a BBQ component.

Fingers crossed that the weather will actually be warm and not.... cold, so please bring some extra camping or folding chairs.

***Unless you are Lyle, who must bring the Sauerkraut and even more brats.

Tacoma Fireworks show

Needs a location

After three years the cities fireworks show is back! The area is pretty larger and its tough to know ahead of time where a good spot for our group to set up will be, I'll be posting comments and updates on this post as the event starts of where I'm at as soon as I can find a hopefully less crowded spot with a good view.

More details about the event, which starts far earlier in the day though I won't be there until around 9 or later as I'll be at the BBQ event we are doing before this one. I'd estimate about a 15-20 minute drive from the BBQ event to the this location.

Carpooling recommend, parking will likely be bad. Also I recommend that you should have the covid vaccine for such a large gathering of people.
