We may not get a lot of summer in the South Sound,but you can’t say we don’t make the most of it! Case in point: Excellent, free summer concerts for the kiddos all over.
Virtually every city hosts free concerts during the summer months. I’ve only listed those specifically geared towards children here. Grab your calendars and make plans to catch your favorites!
Wednesday kids’ concerts at noon at the town plaza *There is a water feature here, so you may want to bring a change of clothes. As of 6/19 it is not operating due to a filter problem. I’ll keep you posted on that.
