“Editor’s Best Bet: Yelm Jazz Festival, 3-9 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 5
“Yelm’s first-ever Jazz Festival is 3-9 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 5 at Yelm City Park with live music all day, food vendors and a beer garden. Bring a chair or a blanket.
“The Choro Group starts off the day, followed by Red and Ruby at 4 p.m., Jessica Blinn at 5:15, Anjali at 6:30 and The Hot Club of Space at 7:45. The event is free (read next week’s Nisqually Valley News for a feature on the various musicians).
“‘The Jazz Festival is an idea long overdue,’ said Yelm Mayor JW Foster. ‘We are pleased to partner with local businesses to bring this kind of family entertainment to our city. Yelm is a wonderful place to visit and we’re happy to share what we have with others, while creating entertainment opportunities for our own residents at the same time. It’s going to be an enjoyable evening — a perfect way to end a summer day on the prairie,'” quoting the Nisqually Valley News.
