Lyons offers free concerts
From polka to rock, wide range covered
By Steve Metsch
A wide range of music will be heard this summer during Lyons’ Music In The Park concert series held in Veterans Park, 4100 Lawndale Ave.
The series, which started July 10 with The Redmonds, will bring seven performers each of the next seven Wednesday nights to the village. Admission is free.
Performers are scheduled to play from 6 to 9 p.m. in the pavilion. While there is seating available, it’s a smart idea to bring along some chairs.
