Union County Summer Arts Festival Continues July 11 at Echo Lake Park featuring Black Dog

The Union County Summer Arts Festival concert series continues on July 11, returning to its normal Wednesday evening schedule, with Black Dog taking the stage at 7:30 p.m., sponsored by the Union County Education Association. The free concert series, presented by the Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders, will take place at Echo Lake Park in Mountainside during the month of July and move to Oak Ridge Park in Clark during the month of August.

“We invite everyone to come out to Echo Lake Park and enjoy another season of great music,” said Union County Freeholder Chairman Sergio Granados. “Be sure to keep your Wednesday night’s clear, and arrive early to participate in UC Get Fit Yoga in the Park, a great way for families to stay healthy together.”

Black Dog will perform several classics, including ‘Dazed and Confused’ and ‘Stairway to Heaven,’ as well as the lesser-heard B-sides to satisfy Led Zeppelin’s most discerning fans. Black Dog has been playing together since 2000.

While enjoying the wonderful music, refreshments may be purchased from Benito’s Jersey Curbside Eats or Danny’s Soft Serve Ice Cream .  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 AMP Yoga of Springfield 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.
