Unexpected Brass Band Parade from 3:30pm-4:30pm - Join us for fun filled family friendly parade through the orchard to give the trees some love!
Chandra and the Homeschool Boys from 5-8pm - It was a sad day for Port Angeles, not all that many years ago, when Abby Mae and the Homeschool Boys played their last show. One of Port Angeles' most favorite bands, they combined the timeless tradition of old time music with Gaelic, Blues, and Gospel. Silly, sultry, spiritual, and heartbreaking, Abby Mae and the Homeschool Boys was one foot-stomping band. So it was with great excitement to learn that this great band has been resurrected with one of Port Angeles' musical heroes, fiddler and vocalist Chandra Johnson. Already well-known as a member of San Francisco's great Sam Chase Band and Port Angeles' Crushwater, her newest initiative with the reformed Homeschool Boys is something you don't want to miss. Musical synergy - taking two great musical entities and joining them together to create something even better than the sum of its parts!
