2nd Annual Community Picnic
Saturday August 30 from 5:30 to dusk

Come together for a perfect, end-of-summer night — an old-fashioned outdoor party. Bring your own picnic food and a blanket, and Bloedel Reserve will provide an unforgettable night of Cuban-influenced music by Si Limon; croquet, bocce ball and badminton; or simply basking in the summer breeze with your fellow islanders.  And, since no picnic is complete without a frozen treat, a complimentary dessert will be provided.
