Save the Whale today at Beacon Rocks!

Just a reminder that this month’s Beacon Rocks! event is today from 1-5 p.m. on the Roberto Maestas Festival Street just north of Beacon Hill Station. The theme “Save the Whale”, with an afternoon full of performers, “mini-beach” wading pools, a volleyball contest, a “Save the Whale” haiku contest, visits by local whale biologists showing real whale bones, and more.

We hear that there will be a new food vendor at the site this time as well: Honest Biscuits will be there with plain, sweet, and savory biscuits. See their typical menu here.

Here’s the performance schedule today:

  • 1:00 Ian McFeron Band (original folk/rock)
  • 1:35 The Colour Project (electronic rock)
  • 2:15 Zumba (interactive Latin dance)
  • 2:45 Stefanie and The Straight Shooters (acoustic contemporary folk)
  • 3:00 Rat City Brass (instrumental 60’s pop)
  • 3:45 Zumba
  • 4:00 Poetry and Haiku Contest winner reading by Suzanne Edison
  • 4:15 More Of Anything (rock and roll)

As always, neighbors of all ages are welcome. Beacon Rocks! is a free event.
