Polly Plumb Productions invites you to take a socially distanced, masks on stroll through Yachats, during the 2021 Spring Equinox Celebration and Flower Bulb Exchange. This Spring Stroll will be held Saturday March 20, 2021. Hours are 11:15 AM -1:30 PM.
Enjoy musical entertainment at 4 Yachats locations provided by a variety of Lincoln County performers. There will be one or two acts at four venues. The Drift Inn Hotel Lobby, under the Rainspout sign, The Old Yachats Fire Station, The Pavilion behind the Yachats Commons, and The Piper on the Point will perform outside, at the end of the earth, in the Yachats State Park.
Pollly Plumb Productions board member Robert Rubin said, “The plan is for the musicians to be inside, shielded from any inclement weather, with the audience outside, strolling between the 4 venues, and sharing flower bulbs and plants. Since we are dealing with both Covid restrictions and weather uncertainties this event is constantly evolving. Everyone involved has displayed a wonderful attitude towards making this a fun event.”
Most acts are scheduled for a 45 minute set beginning at 11:30 AM and 12:30 PM with a 15 minute break between artists. The Piper will start at 11:15 AM and play shorter sets.
Dig some bulbs and bring some plant starts. Sunshine is expected! Dress appropriately for the weather. Bring an umbrella, if it’s not too windy.
