2016 Union County Summer Arts Festival finale at Oak Ridge Park August 24 featuring New York State of Mind

New York State of Mind

The 2016 Union County Summer Arts Festival concert series  will come to an end this coming Wednesday evening August 24, with N.Y. State of Mind taking the stage at 7:30 p.m. The free concert series is presented by the Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders and sponsored by Whole Foods of Clark.

“We wrap up another exciting summer of entertainment in our parks with a fabulous performance featuring music made famous by the great Billy Joel,” 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.”

Formed over the winter months of 2014 and 2015, New York State of Mind celebrates one of the greatest singer/songwriters of our time. The band’s precise renditions of Billy Joel’s classic songs are certain to move both casual listeners and hardcore fans to their feet and have them singing along with all of the well known and loved classics.

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 Hot Yoga Revolution of 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.

Along with the music and yoga, representatives from the Union County Department of Public Safety will be on hand to provide concert goers with information on keeping yourself and your family safe and will have a number of public safety vehicles on display.
