Trout Lake Outdoor Summer Concert Series Returns July 5, 2017

DSCF8778_cropThe Trout Lake Outdoor Summer Concert Series is back for another year starting Wednesday, July 5th. If you have not checked out this great free summer event, you truly are missing out.  This annual event is hosted by the Trout Lake Community Center at 3360 Victoria Drive.  Concerts happen every Wednesday evening throughout the summer rain or shine. If it rains, concerts go indoors to the Grandview Room. We’ve had the opportunity to take in some of the concerts on a nice summer evening and we have to say, it is a pretty perfect way to spend an evening. Bring a blanket, your friends, or the dog or both and a picnic and you are set. There are a few new additions this year including a BBQ and the Carousel Café to grab some food while there.  For parents with young children, there will also be a kids art station as well as the great playground near the concert stage.  We have set out the musical line up for this summer below.  Each evening kicks off at 6:30 pm.  By the way, dancing is encouraged, so don’t be shy. Others certainly aren’t. If you are lucky, you will see a few couples showing off their exceptional dancing skills which we witnessed one year which certainly added to our evening.  We encourage you to check out this popular free family friendly event.
