Lakewood's summer concerts return...virtually
As large public gatherings are still prohibited due to COVID-19, Lakewood has reimagined the popular Concerts in the Park series as a new Virtual Summer Concert lineup, releasing a new video performance each Thursday at 5:30 p.m. from June 18 through August 6 (no concert on July 2).
You can view the concerts right here (bookmark this link: www.lakewoodcity.org/Concerts). A new concert will be available at 5:30 p.m. on each concert date when you click on the link or the photo of the band. Past concerts will remain available so you can enjoy them again.
Set up your laptop on the patio, gather the family, and fire up the barbeque for a summer evening of good food, fun and music at home.
