Outdoor Concert + Picnic

Enjoy free concerts every Sunday eve at this popular park. Other Meetup groups here too. This night is Furious George - a good dance band.

Bring a blanket or chair to hear your favorite local bands. Train and carousel rides $2. each. Children under three ride free with a paying adult. Bring a picnic dinner or food will also be available for purchase. Free parking, but fills up early!

The concert series runs from May - July and we're in need of fun-loving individuals to help host and co-host these Sunday evenings . If you like dancing, making new friends, and enjoying a beautiful evening under the stars ~ this would be an excellent opportunity for you.

    The band was great, and those of us who showed up had a great time. Balloon in back Rt-corner, and super park for big concert so let's do it again.

    Hahaha! I haven't laughed so hard in awhile - trying to keep up with "dance director" Sherry! Wheeee that gal has energy! It was nice under the big pine trees in the back, and we talked and laughed and danced right there. About 10 of us had a great time, and even the wind died down. The band played a good variety of music, and sitting way in the back we could actually hear ourselves get to know each between shaking a leg, that is...

    The gazebo is where the band is performing. The entrance to the seating area leads to the left side of the lawn, so keep walking on the path, to get to the right side of the lawn. I hope folks will make an attempt to sit together. By the way, the speakers by the stage are loud, so that's why we would not want to sit there. You might even want to bring earplugs, as we go up front to dance!

    Hi, everyone. I will be bringing the yellow balloon, and expect to get there about 20-30 minutes before it starts. Look for me toward the BACK of the venue, on the RIGHT side as you look toward the gazebo! If there is not enough room there, then I will shift toward the LEFT side in the rear. So, RRear first, LRear second choice. That way perhaps we can converse a little during the concert if we want, and not blow out our eardrums! This is a great people-watching event, and many people drag all kinds of food along and put on a big spread. NO GLASS bottles or glasses! There is regular concession food and ice cream that can be purchased there, and one could always bring their own spirits in a non-glass container! Alcohol IS allowed in cans, etc, and they want a $10 permit fee, but if it's not recognizable....for those who imbibe. This is a great place to bring color light-up toys! And lots of kids and adults do just that! It's a good time, so lets meet and have fun!

    The seating area is very large, much bigger than the Civic Ctr Plaza or the Promenade, so look for Kaz with the yellow balloon. I also posted a discussion on 'how to find the balloon.' See Discussions tab.
