FREE Music in the Park with Sky Colony this Saturday at 6pm

The Sky Colony

Join us for a free, all ages concert July 14th at 6pm. Jump, dance, hoot and holler at the stage in Pioneer Park with Sky Colony.

The Sky Colony’s sound is a folk rock revival. They describe it as “a mixture of the call of the Cascadian wilderness and an ‘age past’, the 60’s psychedelia era. Time upon time it has been deemed unique, a sound of ‘luminous spirituality that sets a fire in the mind’.” Learn more about them by clicking here.

This event is part of our 2018 “Summer of Fun”. You can find out about more free recreational events by clicking here.

For questions about Music in the Park, please contact Recreation Coordinator Riley Sweeney at (360) 685-2353 or email him directly by clicking here.

Clues will be distributed through the City’s facebook page (found here), twitter account (found here) and posted at City Hall, the Ferndale Library and the Ferndale Visitor Center. The first clue will be released Sat. July 1st, and then after that it is every Tuesday and Friday until July 20th.

All participants will receive a prize, but the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners will also receive a cash prize, 4th-6th place winners will receive gift certificates and everyone who participates will feel a sense of accomplishment and fun.
