Issaquah Make Music Day will help residents do just that.
The Downtown Issaquah Association will lead downtown merchants and all in attendance in a celebration of music June 21.
Front Street North will set the scene for more than 30 artists and musical performances. They will play from 4 p.m. until late into the night at 16 venues.
Issaquah Make Music Day will not exclude anyone who wishes to perform. The rest of the community can take part in making music of their own on the steps of City Hall at 6 p.m. There, a favorite of last year will return as the All Instrument Flash Mob, made up of musical members of the public, joins to perform “Louie, Louie.”
