Acoustic Tidal Artwalk!

Wow, this summer just blew right by. It is hard to think that a only 2 months ago the Colorado Lagoon played host to the First Annual
A night a music Art and Music in the Sand

It was a beautiful collaboration of people of the community coming together to help bring awareness to the Colorado Lagoon. The night was in full display of beautiful Art, some great local musicians, live graffiti artist, hands on art for kids and education tables that got a lot of attention. We had the great folks from LB providing Valet bike parking for everyone. There was food to munch on and refreshments to enjoy.

The night went off without a hitch with upwards of 300 people stopping by throughout the evening. There were people from the immediate surrounding community and folks from other cities. Everyone was welcome and seemed to be enjoying themselves.

Take a look....

The day started at 9am with The Crew digging 38 holes along the evening tide line.

It was a lot of work but it paid off beautifully!
