Summer of Love Flyer2017 - Summer of Love!

It's the 50th Anniversary of that fateful summer that brought us Jerry Garcia and the Grateful Dead, Grace Slick and Jefferson Airplane. So channel your inner hippie, make sure you have "some flowers in your hair," put on some tye-dye, and join us for the magic of the summer of 1967. If you weren't born yet, no worries, the fashion is back in style! Join us as we celebrate the Summer of Love!
