The Ballard Jazz Festival is going on April 25th to April 28th. Last year my partner, Michael, and I attended several of the venues and we had a great time. There are a lot of wonderful groups to listen to and it’s a fun way to check out several of the downtown Ballard nightspots. It’s also a great way to meet up with neighbors in the area and to support the area. Since this site is dedicated not only to lending and housing information but also information about the neighborhoods I thought that some of you might enjoy it. I can’t make it since I’m back in Kansas but I hope that some of you will be able to take advantage of the entertainment. I’ll be thinking about it while I am here and wishing I could join you.
