Last week, a patron asked if there's a printed schedule of all the events on the Santa Fe Plaza and bandstand. For anyone who's been downtown lately, there's almost always something going on there, whether it's a visiting a capella choir at lunch or some impromptu drumming and bellydancing. It's quite a treat to take a quick break and wander around to hear and see what's going on, especially with a chocolate egg cream or other warm weather treat.
Thankfully, for those folks who like to make planned trips to the heart of the city, the official Santa Fe Bandstand program starts on Monday, July 5. Every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evening from 6 - 8:30 p.m., and every Monday and Wednesday afternoon from noon - 1:30 p.m., live music will be on the Community Bandstand until August 19. The Bandstand features all kinds of local, national, and international acts, and is a great place to take the family, out-of-town visitors, or just run into friends that you haven't seen in a while. One of my favorites is Clan Tynker, performing at 6 pm on July 5, because what goes better with ice cream than fire juggling?
So be sure to check out the Bandstand schedule and get your summer entertainment at this free series.
