“Dance and Relax at Jazz in the Park Festival This Weekend”
“Backed by popular demand, the annual Jazz in the Park Festival will transport concert goers to Paris for the third year in a row as live musicians deliver sweet, rhythmic tunes for two summer nights. The free event will take place 6 to 10 p.m. Friday, Aug. 2 and 5 to 11 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 3.
“Since the event’s inaugural year in 2017, this free music festival — sponsored by La Gitana Pizzeria and the City — has brought family and friends together to enjoy the summer evening while listening to music, dancing, and relaxing under the stars with about 1,000 people attending last year’s event.
“Now in its third year, Pizzeria La Gitana owner Marian Licxandru anticipates an even stronger turnout this year with multiple musicians on deck, a dance floor, beer and wine garden, and Paris-like ambiance with gas fire pits, patio heaters, and string lights. He recommends bringing your family and friends, picnic baskets, blankets and to be prepared to be transported to a vacation state of mind,” by the City of Yelm release.
Blogger Klein is a Yelm Jazz in the Park event sponsor for the third year.
