Summer concerts: Lots of music in lots of Pierce County parks

Tuesday, June 12, 2018 1:00 PM by Matt Wakefield

Long, warm summer evenings in Pierce County give families the opportunity to get out of the house, and summer concerts in the park are a Northwest staple that provides the motivation to do so. Several cities around the county make a local park into a community gathering point where visitors and residents alike gather together to celebrate the season with notes and harmony drifting through the air.

Nearly every day of the week, if you were in the mood for some outdoor tunes, you could find your fix somewhere in Pierce County.
