I know there will be a lot of events in other areas, but this event sounds like so much fun and it is FREE (other than the cost of any food, beverages, or items you purchase). Music & More Fest at Lamar Park, Saturday, July 26th will feature the bands: The Adams Family and Meet the Beetles cover band. There will also be other fun activities you can participate in during this event.
Activities at the event:
DANCING, volleyball, basketball, classic car displays, frisbee golf Hole-in-One contest, climbing wall for the kids, food and beverages available for purchase--including a beer & wine tent, and there will be a movie (TBD) at the end of the night--I will update with the name of the movie, as soon as its determined. The park also has a Splashpad for the kids (Parents should always accompany their children to the splashpad, since there is no supervision provided by the park at the splashpad): http://www.wyomingmi.gov/ParksRec/Splashpadbrochure.pdf
3:00 -- Activities Open
5:30 -- Wyoming Bandstand
6:30 -- Adams Family Band
8:30 -- Meet the Beetles Cover Band
10:00 -- The Movie that will be shown is "The Goonies (1985)" based on peoples voting results.
I would recommend that you bring folding chairs and/or blankets, sunscreen, bug spray--just in case, or anything else that will help you have fun and be comfortable during the events.
The event will be family-friendly, with activities for kids, including bounce houses, face painting, balloons and art projects.
Parking: I suggest getting there early to get a good parking spot. The concerts will be in the White band stand marked by the blue star on the above map. Entrance typically is off Porter Street, but there will be people directing traffic, so follow where they direct you.

Beer and Wine Tent info.: The beer and wine tent open from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Alliance Beverage, which has contracts with at least two local breweries, will be the distributor. I know that I don't have to say it, but as a host, I am obligated, please drink responsibly or have a designated driver--if you find that necessary, since there will not be a shuttle service available and I will NOT be a designated driver for members. :)
