Saturday in the Park

The featured color at Colorburst Park this Saturday is Blue.

The Columbia Democratic Club is inviting the community to a free event that they call The Big Blue Block Party. It’s this Saturday, June 18th, at Colorburst Park in the Merriweather District. As of now the weather forecast indicates a high of 73 and sunny. That’s pretty darned promising for an outdoor event.

What’s happening? There will be food trucks, music provided by DJ Jonathan Stoddard, and an opportunity to try out those new e-scooters.

@ColumbiaMDTweet: Need to be gently guided into your first #escooter ride? The folks from @ridespin will run demos from 12-2.

If you are a yoga aficionado, there will be a free 30-minute yoga class at 10:15 am provided by special guest YogaSix. (You will need to bring your own mat.)

Truth in advertising: there will also be information about Columbia Democratic Club-endorsed candidates and opportunities to register to vote if you haven’t already. Basically, the goal of the Big Blue Block Party is to provide a fun and welcoming event and to increase voter engagement and registration.

All that having been duly noted, I have been assured that The Big Blue Block Party is open to the public. Anyone, regardless of political affiliation, is welcome to come on down and enjoy the event.

They’d like you to RSVP using the following link: Big Blue Block Party but I imagine that, if you are out and about on Saturday and decide to pop on over and check it out, you will be more than welcome. 

The Big Blue Block Party will be held on Saturday, June 18th from 11 AM - 4 PM in Colorburst Park. (Yoga at 10:15)

Colorburst Park is located at 6000 Merriweather Drive, Columbia, MD 21044.

What am doing Saturday? I’ll be starting my day at the Chrysalis, of course, seeing the amazing Dan and Claudia Zanes at this year’s first Chrysalis Kids Concert. There’s still time for you to register for your free tickets. The concert is from 10-11 am, Chrysalis amphitheater, Merriweather Park at Symphony Woods. 

Learn more at the event page: Dan and Claudia Zanes, Chrysalis Kids. You may remember Dan Zanes from Playhouse Disney and Nick, Jr. He’s still going strong, with music that just as fun for adults as it is for kids. Joined by wife (and music therapist) Claudia Zanes, their concerts combine traditional songs from Dan’s repertoire plus music from Claudia’s Haitian heritage, as well. (Dan and Claudia Zanes)

See you there?
