2012 Summer Concerts In the Park


It’s summer time and what a great way to celebrate fun in the sun than with food, music and a few hundred local neighbors.  Grab a picnic dinner, head out early with blankets, chairs and fun toys for the wee ones while enjoying a night in the park filled with great music.  Check with your sit or local parks as some have been known to rent a couple of bounce houses to keep the munchkins entertained.
