You may have noticed that the Downtown Columbia Partnership is very excited.
Tomorrow. Tomorrow. Tomorrow. #lakefrontlive lakefrontlive.org
If you’ve been hoping to see more life down at the lakefront, you’re probably getting excited, too. Here are some photos courtesy of DTC:
So here’s my friendly reminder that Tonight! Tonight! Tonight! is the kickoff event for a summer of Lakefront Live brought to you by Columbia Association in collaboration with Columbia Festival of the Arts. Yes, that’s right, you’ll want to be down at the Lakefront tonight to hear Mambo Combo and enjoy some tasty food from Cured. They’re asking you to RSVP here, probably to get an idea of how many people to expect. The event itself is free, the food will be available for purchase.
DTC is so excited about tonight’s event that they expressed regret that the CA Board won’t be able to attend and join in all the fun.
But... but... but... they are going to miss Mambo Combo at the first #LakefrontLive headline event concert of the summer. #DTCRocks
It’s okay to get excited. It’s the first lakefront concert of the summer. The folks at The 3rd will be out and about, too. Check this out:
I checked the weather forecast and, as of now, there’s no prediction of rain. So bring your blanket or folding chairs and have some fun. Bug spray might be a wise choice, too.
If you can’t make it tonight, check out the other events planned for this summer. The lineup reflects a positive reponse to the community’s request for more diverse performers. There will be movies, too, and Dancing Under the People Tree. If you’re a traditionalist, be forewarned: they’re moving around the Dancing component to different days of the week. Don’t just go on automatic pilot. Check the schedule.
On the other hand, if you’re the kind of person who lives life with abandon, I’m sure it’s legal to dance under the People Tree any day of the year.
