Summer Concert Series in Menlo Park

The bands are top notch

The city of Menlo Park is having their annual 2010 Summer Concert Series kicking it in gear again this summer.  The musical genres that we’ll experience at the park include blues, funk, jazz, Cuban/salsa, classic rock, Cajan and tribute bands for U2 & The Beatles.

Everyone brings their picnic dinner, via walking or bicycle

It runs from June 23 through Aug. 11, and each concert starts at 6:30 p.m. and runs until 8 p.m..  The 2 block parties from from 6 to 9 p.m..  The concerts are free to any who wish to walk or ride their bikes there with their families. And many folk do attend. It’s a wonderful mid-week break for one and all.
