Sounds of Summer

Nothing says "Summer" to me more than sitting in the park and listening to a live musical performance.

Next week, the "Hot Notes, Cool Nights" concerts will begin at Riverton and Lander's city parks: I can hardly wait. The community band opens the evening concerts, and guest performers bring the evening to a close.

On those nights, I grab my knitting bag and my folding chair and head to the park.

  1. We are into the fourth week of our Music Under the Stars series with the TRADOC army band. The second week was cancelled due to bad weather. The experience I gained from the other two allow me to encourage you to pack bug spray and/or bounce sheets in your knitting bag. Trust me, it will make the concert much more enjoyable!

  5. We live not too far from a park that also has a summer concert series. While we don't always go to the park, we can often hear the music wafting into our backyard. It is a pleasant way to spend a summer evening.

  6. That sounds like fun! Here in LA, it would be "hot notes under humid temps with lots of mosquitoes!"
