Thornton Place introduces free Summerfest fun

Posted by Mai Ling on June 8th, 2013

Thornton Place is inviting the community to its upcoming free Summerfest activities, which kick off June 22 with the Latin-inspired “Side of Salsa” from 3-6 p.m.

The festivities begin with a salsa lesson by instructors from the Century Ballroom, followed by live music from Miho & Diego. There will also be food available from the food truck Taco Gol.

Summerfest continues July 27 with “Paris on the Plaza.” From a description distributed by Thornton Place:

Mais oui! We’ve enjoyed our Nation’s birthday this month and so did another country we know, France! Let’s celebrate with a little bit of Parisian culture on the plaza. Stop on in for a quick lesson in swing dancing, grab a crepe from Crisp Seattle, and sit with your amour as our jazz trio livens up the plaza with music. Have a taste of the classic Parisian time all and before you know it you won’t want to say Au Revoir to the night.

And we’ll say goodbye to Summerfest with a “Hawaiian Hello” on Aug. 14th:

Think summer is over? Well then say hello to some Hawaiian beach fun. Come enjoy our beach-themed night on our own private oasis. We might not have a pig roast but Raney Brothers BBQ will be on site to feed your beach appetite. Miho & Diego make their second appearance at the plaza with a completely different set of musical stylings, bringing you the sounds of the luau. Don’t say goodbye to summer, give a big Hawaiian Hello to our last Summerfest event hosted by Thornton Place! The party starts at 3:00pm!

    We had that happen to my sons car 2-3 weeks ago. My hubby went to a salvage yard and got a window replacement for $50. Way to go for those of us that do have deductible. Another thing we found out that the car insurance would cover a window for example but if anything was taken from inside that goes to your homeowners. The one with the highest deductible is what they use. Hard to win.Thats PEMCO, BTW: others may differ
