Union County Summer Arts Festival moves to Oak Ridge Park July 27 featuring Black Dog

The Union County Summer Arts Festival concert series continues this coming Wednesday evening August 3, with Black Dog taking the stage at 7:30 p.m. The free concert series is presented by the Union County Board of Chosen Freeholder. Wednesday’s performance is also sponsored by Whole Foods of Clark.

“We are delighted to bring the Summer Arts Festival to Oak Ridge Park,” said Union County Freeholder Chairman Bruce Bergen. “And be sure to arrive early to participate in UC Get Fit Yoga in the Park, a great way for families to stay healthy together.”

Black Dog proudly pays tribute to the mighty Led Zeppelin with an extensive catalogue of songs comprised of classic masterpieces like “Dazed and Confused”, “Heartbreaker”, and “Stairway to Heaven”, as well as rare B-sides to satisfy the more discerning fans. Established in early 2000, the band is comprised of accomplished musicians with considerable experience.

While enjoying the wonderful music, concertgoers can visit Tony’s Traveling Trattoria which will treat your palate to excellent Italian comfort food. Also the Good Humor Truck will be on site hosted by TG and Sons serving ice cream and snacks. Attendees can also pack a picnic basket, bring lawn chairs or blankets and enjoy the music under the stars.

Once again UC Get Fit Yoga in the Park, a Union County Freeholder initiative will be part of the Wednesday night pre-concert schedule, with Alluem Yoga in Cranford presenting a free community 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.

Throughout the summer at each concert one Union County Department will be featured, distributing handouts and highlighting their own unique services. On this evening the Union County Clerk’s Office will be on hand.
