Music is back in Morley Park, in Cedar Springs, and there will be another concert tonight, Thursday, July 21 at 7 p.m. with the group “Brena.” It may be warm outside, but come try and relax to the sweet sounds of this awarding winning band, that even has their own CD.
In addition to the entertainment, there will be concessions and door prizes, along with cotton candy and frozen snacks. These frozen snacks and the cold beverages will help you counteract the heat. The event is free to the public and will include a free raffle of door prizes during the bands intermission. The door prizes are donated by local businesses.
This is the fifth year that the Cedar Springs Area Parks and Recreation department and local businesses have sponsored concerts in the park. The events began in 2006 with one concert and grew in 2007 to holding three concerts. The Cedar Springs businesses work with the department to offer these events at no charge to the community. “These concerts have grown in size and have become a mainstay summer event for the Cedar Springs area,” said CSAPR Director Amanda Gerhardt. “We enjoy watching the community come and relax for an evening. The hard economic times make it difficult for some families to do activities, so we are thrilled to provide them this opportunity to have some fun.”
An additional concert will be held on August 18 in Morley Park and will feature 50’s and 60’s music by “ The Sea Cruisers.”
Another event that the Cedar Springs Area Parks and Recreation department is sponsoring is the 3rd Annual mud volleyball tournament on Saturday, August 13. Registration is open currently and continues through August 5. Forms are available online and at CS Public Schools District Office.
