The event is sponsored by a number of great eateries, including Sparrow, Bohemian Beer Garden, and Vesta, so maybe considering dropping by and having a little something there to support their support of this great local music event.

Additionally – most of us know that trash cans are really stressed in Astoria Park, so please consider packing out what you pack in.  It will make the hanging out time in Astoria Park much more enjoyable for your fellow Astorians!

And let’s hope for comfortable weather, too!
