Spring Walkabout in South Park
Yarn bombing and tarot readings
From 6-10, on Saturday March 23rd, the community of South Park will host a Spring Walkabout.
Highlights include, live music on stage at Rebecca’s Coffeehouse, tarot readings at Kwan Yin Holistic Center, a guided walking tour through the neighborhood of South Park hosted by Urban Safari, a free trolley that circulates throughout South Park, restaurant discounts, and activities for children.
Stop by Graffiti Beach on Fern Street to celebrate the store’s one year anniversary and witness Marcy Kraft of Crochet Grenade, hard at work.
Graffiti Beach owner Melanie Michaud explains, “At this walkabout we will be bringing back our yarn bomber to do a live installation in the store!”
Marcy Kraft has been busy yarn bombing the front of Graffiti Beach throughout the month of March in an effort to raise awareness for the Graffiti Beach’s Print is Not Dead, Kickstarter Campaign.
“The Kickstart campaign will allow us to print our 152 page magazine that features emerging artists around the globe.”
Graffitti Beach will be collecting onsite donations for the project.
Walk a little bit further down Fern St. and you’ll find Thomas Bike Shop – the oldest shop in South Park. On the 23rd, the bike store will host “Daffodil Days” a raffle benefiting the American Cancer Society. The winner will receive a Virtue 1 Coaster Brake Commuter Bike (value $329). Thomas Bike shop will serve mac ’n’ cheese, salad, and punch at the walkabout.
Over on 30th street, Hamilton's will host a BBQ featuring sliders (vegan option available), grilled corn & baked beans. They will have art supplies on hand for the kiddos.
