Photos: Taste of Land Park draws crowd of more than 600
A crowd of about 650 to 750 people took in live music, food and chit-chat with their neighbors Sunday at the annual Taste of Land Park.
For $25 in advance or $30 at the door, attendees sampled items from a slew of local and regional vendors who had set up booths. It was essentially an outdoor, all you-can-eat-and-drink buffet: There was everything from sushi from Miso Japanese Cuisine, to chili dogs from Willie’s Burgers and Chiliburgers, to coffee from Espresso Metro Cafe. Also popular: the wine from independent vineyards and the beer that came courtesy of local brewers like Track 7, Rubicon brewery and Pyramid Alehouse .
"It’s going beyond even our greatest expectations as far as the turnout today," Land Park Community Association President Mark Abrahams said Sunday. " The weather turned out perfect… People are just excited to be here and so are we."
The event also drew politicians – Steve Hansen and Joe Yee, the two remaining District 4 City Council candidates, were out working the crowd.
