Bring your chairs and blankets, and maybe a picnic dinner for your family to the Wakefield Common (intersection of Main and Church Streets) for one or both of the lively free summer concerts LTC is offering this summer right by the lake. You can watch the sunset and there is plenty of space for young to old to dance. A perfect evening outing!
(In case of inclement weather, the concerts will be held downstairs at the Wakefield UU Church, 326 Main Street, just a few blocks from the Common. It will still be free and you can still bring your picnic dinner!)
