Free Concert at Long's Park

Long's Park offers a free concert series every Sunday night throughout the summer. They have food vendors there or we can bring picnic baskets, blankets, lawn chairs and enjoy the music. The website is below for additional questions. The musician is Eddie Palmieri, who I have never heard of, but is the bandleader of a Latin Jazz band and the winner of 9 Grammy awards. The concert starts at 7:30 but I suggest we meet at 7pm to try to get decent places on the lawn to sit. Once it gets closer, I'll send out an email with where we will meet. The concerts are held rain or shine except for dangerously inclement weather.

    Talented music group, but not my type of music. I was expecting something a little different. I left early because of lightning and thankfully made it home right when it started to rain (rode my motorcycle).

    The gazebo is really a big brick pavilion. I am waiting on the side closest to the stage. I will wait until 7:15...if you get there after that call[masked] and I will direct you to the group

    Sorry, but I went to something similar last night. Poor planning on my part. Have a great time!

    Since it doesn't seem likely to organize a carpool from the Harrisburg/Colonial Park area - I will have to cancel.

    Maybe next event . . .

    Has a meeting point been finalized yet? This is my 1st MeetUp, so I don't know who to look for. It will be nice to meet new friends. Thanks!

    hey guys! I've actually never been to the park for these concerts and am having a hard time figuring out where to the tell the group to park. There's parking available at the Park City Center, but that's at the opposite end of the park. Is anyone aware of any additional parking closer to the amphitheater? If I don't get an answer by tonight, then I will send out an email coordinating us meeting at the Park City Center and walking over together. Thanks!

      There is parking throughout the park in many different areas. If you drive into the park from Harrisburg Pike, you will likely be able to find parking somewhere in the park if you get there relatively early. The parking at Park City is also a good option. There is a tunnel to Longs park that appears kind of "scary" but usually there is tons of people parking and walking back and it is safe. It would be easiest to find a spot to meet in the park. They usually have a string of food trucks to the let of the stage (as you face the stage). There is a gazebo toward the back of the grassy area that might be a good meeting area. A little farther away is the petting zoo. You could always go a little early and meet there. Good luck and have fun.

      When you get into the entranceway to longs park follow the road around to the right the whole way around the park And you will see parking cones and other cars parked on the grass.

    The Amphiheater is in Longs Park.

    • Erica

      Sorry I should have been clearer - I know the Amphitheater is in the park, I'm just trying to determine how close the parking is to it. The closest parking lot I can find so far is at the complete other end of the park.

    Anyone interested in car pooling from Schuykill county?

    Erica, There are some nice spots on the hill by the sycamore trees near picnic tables. Down close on the lawn may be difficult for the group to find each other.
