Prep the picnic – park concerts begin

Time to block out Wednesday evenings on the family calendar. Get the kids, grab a picnic, and head downtown, where the Concerts at Waterfront Park series begins July 8.

Locust Street Taxi is on the bill, a band that describes itself as "like a zoo burning down – but in a good way."

The free concert begins at 7 p.m.

Oh, the king is in the altogether

In conjunction with the Bainbridge Public Library's summer reading program, the Monroe-based Last Leaf Theater troupe will present "The Emperor's New Clothes" at 10:30 a.m. July 7 in the Commodore School cafeteria.

Gather the kids for this fun, silly adaptation of the familiar Hans Christian Andersen story of a pompous and foolish emperor who has no clue about the ridicule his new “suit” will expose him to.

The show is free; for more information, contact the library at 842-4162.

Appointments are advised, and can be made through the website,, or by calling 842-7631. Hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Looking into the summer, the Reserve will remain open until 7 p.m. Thursdays through August, to encourage after-work visitors from the island as well as from surrounding communities in Kitsap County.
