More about the concert series

The free concerts begin at 7 p.m. in the Mark Carlson Memorial Gazebo at Ellery Park and last about an hour. As customary, free ice cream is served to the audience by the Lions members and provided by Cass Clay Creamery. Two community picnics put on by the club have also been planned for June 30 and July 21. They begin at 5 p.m.

Picnic benches are provided to sit on, but concertgoers are also encouraged to bring lawn chairs or blankets.

In case of inclement weather, the concerts will be moved indoors to an alternate location.

The concerts are funded through the Lions club and Rugby Park District. A free will offering is expected each week to go toward the music in the park program.
