Lake City Park to Host Erie Bands
Enjoy local music at Lake Erie Community Park
Wednesday, June 13
For nearly 80 years the Lake Erie Community Park (LECP) in Lake City has been a beautiful lakeside spot to gather, enjoy the company of neighbors, and now local music as part of the Music in the Park summer concert series.
Rain or shine, each Wednesday evening from mid-June to the second week of August is designated for a wide range of musical performances such as Sam Hyman, Smoke and Mirrors and Tom Beam. In addition to these artists, the park will welcome The Fugitives, Erie Heights Brass Ensemble, The Loose Change Band, Mark Morris, DangerBird, Steppin' Pappy, and The Mountain Thyme Ramblers.
Last year, the events had upwards of 200 attendees each night with the most popular show being Matty B. & the Dirty Pickles, which attracted over 300 listeners, said Sandra Anderson of Girard Township Planning.
Those interested in the series this year are welcome to make themselves at home.
"You can bring your dinner with you or other snacks; we have an ice cream truck there," Anderson said.
Due to local sponsorship, the concert series is free to attend. Seating is provided in the form of a grassy park lawn, but those looking for something a little more cozy are invited to bring folding chairs or blankets to the show. — Hannah McDonald
