At no cost to the community, the family-friendly concerts have been a late summer event to look forward to, with the proceeds from refreshments benefiting Leila Arboretum. There are still opportunities to sponsor this event and volunteer.
All shows are free, and run from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Refreshments, soft drinks, and beer will be available for purchase. Remember to bring your lawn chair or blanket. In light of Covid, we are still practicing social distancing and rules are subject to change depending on CDC regulations.
