Good Vibrations Takes the Stage at Echo Lake Park Aug. 5

Union County, NJ — The Union County free Summer Arts Festival concert series continues on Wednesday evening, August 5, with Good Vibrations at Echo Lake Park in Mountainside. Family friendly pre-concert activities begin at 6:30 and the band hits the stage at 7:30.

“Come and enjoy a cool evening under the stars in the wide open spaces of Echo Lake Park, yoga with the experts, and great music, all with no charge,” Freeholder Chairman Mohamed S. Jalloh.

Summer Arts is a long running initiative of the Union County Freeholder Board, with the help of community sponsors. ConnectOne Bank is the sponsor for the Good Vibrations show.

More than just your typical tribute act, Good Vibrations celebrates the legacy and spirit of the legendary California icons by recreating the timeless music, youthful appearance and excitement of seeing the original Beach Boys lineup in their mid-1960s prime. This high energy production brings the days of sun, surf and cars vividly back to life.

Pack a picnic basket, bring lawn chairs or blankets and enjoy the music under the stars. Refreshments and snacks are also available from vendors.

The August 5 pre-concert activities feature UC Get Fit Yoga in the Park, a Union County Freeholder initiative. Satsang Yoga of Westfield will present a free community yoga class from 6:30 p.m. to 7:15 p.m.  Bring a mat or beach towel and participate in healthy activities for the entire family before the music begins.

Concerts at Echo Lake take place in the field opposite the gazebo and water wheel, near the east end.  For a map of Echo Lake Park visit
