During the winter of 2018 the idea wasraised to host an event that offered all of the best parts of summer in Walker.
Walker begins at the heart of its geography, Leech Lake.
The storied upland forests continue Walker’s true-north mythical theme, but there is so much more; from the activities and views, to the people’s summer-time laissez faire attitude, and the love of congregating together amid summer’s accoutrements such as food, wine, and of course, song,
Walker’s mindset really encompasses a wide-angled approach to knowing all facets of the area, the lake, and her residents.
Walker Bay Live brings a jaunty ethos of fun out to the public at-large in a comfy little event where strangers become acquaintances, become friends. Thus, the place, the people, and the event, come together in an approachable atmosphere every Thursday at 5 p.m. from June 13 through September 5.
This series of events is gathering momentum built on its successful first season last summer.
Walker Bay Live is just that, live.
First is a musical act performing each week; visit their facebook page or the website www.walkerbaylive.com to find out who is playing at which venue.
Second will be food at the events from local restaurants and vendors which brings the event in close to the participants making it a blend of a family style barbeque block-party and a live local music event. Additionally, there will be craft beer from local micro-breweries as well as arts and crafts (and face painting) for the kiddos.
There will be an after-party at the American Legion following each event.
These events take place every Thursday starting tomorrow at the City Park (by the playground).
