Get ready for the 2nd annual Leschi Artwalk this month on Saturday June 8th from 11am-4pm. There will be various exhibits of artwork from local artists, and patrons will enjoy live music, and there will be face painting available for the little ones to join in the artsy festivities.

If you’ve been in the past you won’t want to miss this Artwalk, as this year the Dragon Boats will be participating, and hey, who doesn’t want to jump in and take a spin on a Dragon Boat?! Artwork will be displayed in front of Lakeside businesses, and it might be smart to take the #27 bus into town, as parking tends to get congested during these events.
