Frisco’s Concert In The Park Series begins June 23
Frisco’s Concert in the Park series kicks off Thursday, June 23. The series will take place at the Frisco Historic Park and run for nine Thursdays through Aug. 18. The series will feature music from bluegrass to country to jazz to rock. Each week a different local nonprofit will sell refreshments to raise money in support of their efforts in Summit County. The concerts start at 5:30 p.m. each Thursday and are free to the public. Guests are invited to bring lawn chairs and well-behaved pets to join in on the best family friendly happy hour in Summit County.
“Grab a picnic dinner from one of our local restaurants and spend your Thursday evenings with us in this idyllic setting for concerts,” said Nora Gilbertson, town of Frisco events manager, in a statement. “Purchasing your beverages at the event is a fun and easy way to support the nonprofits that help our local community. I can’t think of a better way to spend a summer evening.”
