Eagle Rock Summer Concerts in the Park Begins June 30

The annual Summer Concerts in the Park in Eagle Rock is opening on Sunday, June 30, with a special double performance as well as a fireworks show.

The Eric Ekstrand Jazz Band and headlining ABBA cover band, ABBAFAB, will perform at 4 and 6:30 p.m., respectively, at the Eagle Rock Recreation Center outdoor stage. It will be followed by fireworks at 9 p.m.

The venue is located at 1100 Eagle Vista Drive in Eagle Rock. Concerts will be held each Sunday evening through the end of August. Starting July 7, all concerts will begin at 6 p.m.

The music is great; every concert is going to be amazing. The sponsors, who are local people and businesses, make this all happen.”
