Kirkland at its best: Summer Concerts at Marina Park (photos)

[nggallery id=166] On Thursday evening, Clinton Fearon and the Boogie Brown Band closed out the 2011 Summer Concerts at Marina Park series with crowds dancing, lounging and soaking up all the best that a Northwest summer has to offer on Kirkland's waterfront. As my wife, Kate, and I sat there enjoying the scene, listening to the music and saying hello to friends as they passed us while sitting on the grass lawn, we commented to ourselves, "Why travel to anywhere else during the summer? This is exactly the scene we would hope to find if we were on vacation."

Perhaps moments like this are why so many of us live here in Kirkland... the "staycations" are great!

Thank you to the volunteers and sponsors of the 2011 Summer Concerts Series at Marina Park!
