The sounds of music filled the air at Forest Park Thursday night, as the City of Springfield kicked off its summer-time Concert in the Parks Series.
The Springfield Park Department will be hosting the Forest Park Concert Series every Thursday in June at the Forest Park Amphitheater.
A new band will perform each week. The outdoor concerts will start at 6:30 p.m., and it’s open to the public free of charge.
“I think it’s a great way to utilize the park,” said Susan Granny of Springfield. “The park is here for everybody in Springfield and we should all use it. This is an amazing way to get together and play.”
The Floyd Patterson Band kicked off the 2018 concerts in the park Thursday night. 22News is a proud sponsor of the Forest Park Concert Series.
