North Lake Ballroom
North Lake Park
Federal Way, Washington

Some of the bands that performed at this place during those great years of NW music were:

The Byrds

Others ??

The North Lake Ballroom was located in Federal Way at North Lake Park in the late 50's to mid 60's  (South of 320th and East of I-5).

The ballroom and entire park have been gone for about 40 years as Weyerhaeuser bought most of the land on the West side of the lake.  Mostly local, South-end bands played there.

The Byrds played there for the Federal Way High School Class of '68 Graduation Party!   I didn't go.   I was motorcycle racing back then and most likely had a race.
