Light refreshments will be served at the event, and music will be provided by the Toy Boats. The Toy Boats are a Seattle-based ensemble of toy and small instrument musicians who play original compositions and arrangements of European folksongs.

History of the Redmond Central Connector
On June 30, 2010, the City of Redmond acquired the Redmond Spur of the Woodinville Subdivision of the Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) Rail Corridor. The corridor extends 3.9 miles from the junction of SR-520 and Redmond Way to the intersection of Willows Road and NE 124th Street.
