“Music in the Park” starts July 11
By Steve Metsch
Eight weeks of free music will be presented in the gazebo at Veterans Park in Lyons starting on July 11.
The village’s “Music in the Park” series presents a wide variety of music from 6:30 to 9 p.m. on Wednesday nights.
There will be free concessions and beverages provided by Lyons Mayor Christopher Getty. It’s a good idea to bring along a lawn chair. The park is on Lawndale Avenue, between Ogden Avenue and the village hall.
Here’s the lineup:
July 11: The Redmonds play classic and contemporary rock.
July 18: Tony & The Affects perform rock ‘n’ roll hits from the ‘50s and ‘60s.
