Best Bets for Aug. 17-19 | The Bainbridge Blab

Welcome back, weekend.

How we’ve missed you, old friend.

Nicolas Lofgren kicks off the happenings this time around, the latest headliner of the ongoing ‘Music on the Green’ series.

The concert at Winslow Green is free and will run from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday. Audience members are encouraged to bring a picnic dinner, chairs — and dancing shoes.

The remaining summer lineup features The Ocean People on Aug. 24, and Psycho Sushi on Aug. 31.

Winslow Green is located at 100 Winslow Way West.

Find “Winslow Green” on Facebook for the latest updates and show announcements.

Also going on Friday: The first screening in this year’s Movies in the Park series.

The beloved Bainbridge Island Metro Park & Recreation District summer film program will return to Battle Point at dusk every Friday from Aug. 17 through Sept. 7. Seating begins at 8 p.m.; admission is free. Light concessions will be available.

The film schedule is:

Aug. 17 – “Coco”: A boy journeys into the Land of the Dead to seek forgiveness from his ancestors and lift a curse.

Aug. 24 – “Wonder”: A 10-year-old boy with a facial deformity attends school for the first time when he begins the fifth grade. With the support of his parents, he learns how to make friends and adjust to his new environment.

Special screening: Aug. 25 – “Pelé”: The perfect pick for Island Cup weekend, this biopic of Brazilian soccer star Pelé recounts his youth in the slums of São Paulo and his rapid ascension to the national team where, at the age of just 17, he helped lead the squad to their first ever World Cup victory in 1958.

Aug. 31 – “Leap”: In 19th century Paris, an orphan enrolls in a dance school and trains to be a prima ballerina.

Sept. 7 – “Star Wars: The Last Jedi”: Rey learns the ways of the Force from Luke Skywalker, and develops a telepathic bond with Kylo Ren, who is struggling to master the Dark Side. Meanwhile, Stormtrooper-turned-Resistance fighter Finn goes on a risky mission behind enemy lines.

On Saturday, consider a trip to the farmers market.

The Bainbridge Island Farmers Market takes over Town Square (outside City Hall) from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. every Saturday through December, offering veggies, herbs, cut flowers, eggs, meats, crafts and cheeses from local vendors, as well as period special events like the beloved zucchini races, and regular live music.

The Bainbridge Blab is your one-stop spot to get the 411 on all things 98110. From South Beach to Agate Passage, Battle Point to Rolling Bay, we’ve got the straight skinny on Bainbridge Island: the latest chatter, babble and burble. News, too. Have a tip or a comment for the Blab? Email us at
