Labor Day weekend might be the unofficial end to summer, but around here we embrace it with the big musical blowout known as Bumbershoot! For 44 years, beneath the shadow of the Space Needle, people have come together to celebrate some of the most exciting music, comedy, theater and art. Hawaiian Reggae band Kore Ionz stopped by the show today to give us a little taste of this year's Bumbershoot Festival. Then Chris Porter, Bumbershoot's Program Director sat down with host Margaret Larson with more on the festival.

Bumbershoot starts this Saturday and runs through Labor Day Monday. Be sure to check out the following links for the lineup and tickets.
