Mark your calendars, summer is here and so are the annual free Summer Concerts In The Park. With the library construction taking place, the performances in Ober Park will be reconfigured to the east side of the Parks Department building, but there is still plenty of grass and natural burms to spread out those picnic blankets. Families can come relax, let the kids play on the playground and enjoy the entertainment at these summer events.
The concerts are presented and funded by Vashon Park District in association with Vashon Events and Vashon Allied Arts.
Grounded in the Afro-Latino sounds of the Caribbean, Picoso’s all original music spans a dynamic spectrum from traditional Cuban son and Cha Cha to dubbed out Cumbia and Reggaeton, and of course their mainstay, Salsa. They are not afraid to stretch beyond what is comfortably known as Latin or world music. The vibe is very urban and hip, without losing the relationship to the ancestor sound.
If you’ve never experienced the warmth of community at the cool nights of summer concerts in the park, you’re in for a special treat. Join us for these magical evenings and enjoy the diversity of these amazing bands right here on Vashon Island.
