They’re Back: The Return of Free Concerts at the Ballard Locks

May 31, 2014

Ballard Locks Music 6Actually, the concerts are in the botanical gardens right next door to the locks, but the best shows in town that people don’t know about have returned to the local landmark.

At 2 pm every Saturday and Sunday now through Labor Day Weekend, there will be a free concert at the Ballard landmark, weather permitting. And there’s really not a bad seat in the house. Even if you can’t see the band, you can still spread out a blanket on the lawn and enjoy the music. I’ve taken my kids and it’s great fun.

Today’s show will feature the Cascadia Contemporary Big Band playing big band music. Next week’s shows feature Barneleikarringen playing Children’s Scandinavian Dance Tunes on Saturday and the Highline Community Symphonic Band playing a variety of classical concert music on Sunday.

For a full list, check out the entire schedule.
