The second Poetry in the Parks event will be held this weekend in conjunction with Juneau's Day of Play celebration. Poetry in the Parks, which kicked off this summer at Project Playground, provides an outdoor venue for sharing original or published poetry in an open-mic format.
This weekend's Poetry in the Parks event takes place Saturday on the Auke Lake Trail floating boardwalk. It will run from 1-2:30 p.m.
