Start the summer with a funky-fresh 70’s beat at the free Summer Concert Series kick-off on Thursday, July 9, featuring The Funky Hippeez. A total of six concerts will be held at Eastgate Park every Thursday through August 13, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Eastgate Park is located at 12001 St. Mark Street.
The first concert also celebrates July as Parks and Recreation Month. The community is invited to come out an hour prior to the concert and celebrate with free activities, including carnival games, face painting, and bounce houses. Various vendors will be selling food, beverages, and dessert.
Hungry for more? Also available at the summer concerts are popular Orange County food trucks. Each Thursday, different gourmet food trucks will offer specialty items to hungry concert goers from the start of the event until the end. The first concert will include Macho-Nacho, Sexy Burger, Greasy Wiener, Piaggio on Wheels, and Dos Chinos food trucks.
For the safety and enjoyment of all, no canopies, golf carts, or alcohol is permitted in the park.
