The traditional Lopez Island end-of-summer celebration and street dance will be on Labor Day, Monday, Sept. 3, in the parking lot of the former Lopez Village Market from 5:30-8:30 p.m.
The nine-member Tiempo de Lopez band, headed by Jaime Cordova, will provide their popular “hot Caribbean” dance tunes. New to the celebration this year, Taste of Persia and Ye Scurvy Dogs street stalls will be set up to offer dinner fare, and sodas will be available for purchase as well. The Love Dog Café and Bucky’s restaurants will be open as usual, offering other dining options.
The 2012 celebration will be hosted by SWAP, the nonprofit supporting the Lopez Solid Waste Disposal District.
Everyone on Lopez is invited to come down to the Village to enjoy the free celebration and dance.
