Summertime brings a variety of free concerts to Long Island. So, pack a picnic, grab your lawn chairs, put on some insect repellent and head outdoors to listen to great local music. Throw down a blanket, spread out the snacks, uncork the wine, and watch the kids boogie under the evening stars as you sway to some cool and breezy melodies. The outdoor concerts are in full force, beckoning visitors to get outside and enjoy the thriving music scene. The free events will keep you tapping your feet. So get out there, enjoy the weather and tune into the music.
Outdoor concerts are a great way to introduce children to a variety of different types of music – and Mom and Dad can sit back and enjoy themselves without worrying that their fidgety kids are bothering nearby music lovers. The season is heating up for outdoor concerts! With the longer days come opportunities to enjoy grooving to tunes under the sun and stars. The window isn’t open for long, so to make the most of your chances this summer.
