Summer concerts offer free fun for all ages | Community Spirit
During the last song of last night's free concert in Audubon Park a conga line broke out. The dancing line of concerts goers was just part of the fun happening at summer park concerts this year.
Thursday night' s performance by the Spokane Jazz Orchestra is just one of the many free concerts happening this summer in area parks. It was surprising to see how many people had gathered at Audubon to enjoy music and picnic dinners.
Families, couples and groups of long time friends gathered to enjoy the music, which featured favorites from Chicago and The Miami Sound Machine. It was the Latin driven “Get on Your Feet” that led to the conga line weaving through the picnic blankets and camp chairs. Toddlers forwent the playground to groove to the music and provided extra entertainment for concert goers.
The summer park concerts are a great, free, activity to enjoy with family, friends, and makes for a romantic date night. Concerts are happening all summer in Audubon Park, Coeur d'Alene Park, Manito Park and Pavilion Park in Liberty Lake. The Symphony will be performing over Labor Weekend at Pavilion Park and Comstock Park as well.
Grab a blanket and a picnic and take advantage of summer at the free park concerts. It's sure to be fun for all! Click on the links below for more information and performance schedules.
