Lyon Park Spring Fair - May 18th, 2013 11am-3pm

The Spring Fair is a great family fun day with games, pony rides, food, bake sale and so forth. Our friends in the Lyon Park community want to invite CABOMA to play that day, like a typical CABOMA Sunday jam. It's on the same weekend for CABOMA at Lyon Park, but would offer an opportunity for an additional jam at Lyon Park. Come on out if you can and pick a few tunes on a Saturday for a change - should be a fun time for all!
Thanks to Coordinator Joline McGoldrick and all of the folks in the Lyon park area!
