Get Your Groove On with a FREE Summer Concert: JERSEY SOUND & ALMOST QUEEN

  • Aug 1, 2014 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Hi Sole Mates,  yes another Friday night of fun!!  Come on out to 'GET YOUR GROOVE ON' and welcome August by joining your friends and Sole Mates at another of the Essex  County Summer Music 2014 Free Concerts featuring 'JERSEY SOUND & ALMOST QUEEN', on Friday, 8/1/14 (all begins at 7:30PM) at the Brookdale Park in Bloomfield, NJ.  Summer will be over before you know and we'll miss these concerts once August is finished!

We will meet at 6:30PM (please try to come as early as possible) on the lawn of the concert, coming into the park from the Watchung Avenue Entrance. You will be directed, as you enter the park, where you will be allowed to park.  If you get there early enough, you could possibly find a parking spot not far from the concert.  We attended a few of these concerts together last year and it was a lot of fun!  Come out and enjoy the cool evening and dance to the music!

IMPORTANT: This is not a walking meetup! Remember to bring a chair or a blanket!  Also, it's always fun to bring some snacks and drinks to share with our group.  Look for the YELLOW balloons!!

I hope we have a big group of Sole Mates to enjoy sitting and watching this concert together!

    I'm not sure what the weather is like near Brookdale but Bergen is pretty wet. I think I'm not going to make the drive. Sorry.

    According to the weather, the rain is supposed to stop very soon. Also, nothing has been cancelled yet, either by the County or the bands. I will keep everyone updated, if anything should change.

    Unfortunately, it just started raining here at the southern end of the park, and I got a flash-flood-warning alert. Don't know if there's been an official word on the concert from the town or county yet.
