The skies may have been grey, but the mood was sunny as Ian Dobson’s Steel Drum Party brought the sounds of the Caribbean to Tuesday’s noontime Concert in the Park at Hazel Miller Plaza.

With the crowd overflowing the plaza and spilling out onto the sidewalks, Dobson and accompanist Christian Krehbiel kept the energy up through an hour of nonstop, foot-tapping, tropical music, that even included a limbo party!

The Summer Concerts in the Park are presented by the Edmonds Arts Commission, and perform on two venues, Hazel Miller Plaza and Edmonds City Park. The twice-weekly Hazel Miller performances are sponsored by the Hazel Miller Foundation. They are held at noon on Tuesdays and at 5 pm on Thursdays. The City Park series runs Sunday afternoons, and is sponsored by Lynnwood Honda and Acura of Lynnwood. All performances are free and open to the public.

  1. It was great to see the crowd surrounding the steel drums group as I drove south on 5th. Hazel Miller Plaza has become such a nice addition to the city.
