The Trout Lake Outdoor Summer Concert Series is back for another year starting tonight. If you have not checked out this great free summer event, you are missing out. This annual event is hosted by the Trout Lake Community Center, 3360 Victoria Drive. Concerts happen every Wednesday evening throughout the summer rain or shine. We had the opportunity to take in a few of the concerts last year and we have to say, it was 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. For parents with small children, there is a playground where kids can play while you, at the same time, can take in the concert. We have set out the musical line up for this summer below. Each evening kicks off at 6:30 pm. Note, any rained our concerts will be held in the Grandview Room. 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 last year which added to the evening. We encourage you to check out this popular fun free event.
