County’s Free Outdoor
Summer Concert Series Kicks Off

JUNE 17, 2014 – Grab a lawn chair and head to one or more of the Middlesex County Board of Chosen Freeholders’ free summer concerts held in four County parks.

“We’re proud to offer another year of the Music in the Parks series to our residents,” said Freeholder Charles E. Tomaro, chair of the County’s Infrastructure Management Committee, which oversees the Parks and Recreation Office. “It’s another great way to enjoy the County’s parks and spend time together.”

Middlesex County Freeholder Director Ronald G. Rios said: “Middlesex County’s parks are the perfect setting for live entertainment, and our residents have agreed for many years. On behalf of the Freeholder Board I encourage all residents to join us for these wonderful free summer events.”  

All concerts are free and open to the public.
