The Ceres Concerts in the Park will return after a two-year hiatus now that the COVID-19 pandemic appears to be phasing away.
Concerts traditionally were held on Tuesdays but were moved to Friday nights in July from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Whitmore Park in downtown Ceres and are free to the public.
The concert series kicks off this Friday with a performance of the Gottschalk Concert Band for patriotic music just in time for the Fourth of July weekend.
The fun continues the next five Fridays with the following concerts:
• Friday, July 9 – Los Reales De Norte (Banda music);
• Friday, July 16 – Church music night with Valley Community Center & Big Valley Grace Ceres groups;
• Friday, July 23 – True South (country music);
• Friday, July 30 – MCW Band (playing a variety of classics for the 1980’s).
Those attending are invited to be comfortable by bringing along a lawn chair or blanket as the City Recreation Department presents a fun-filled night of live music, food (for sale), and games.
The food offering will be tacos, Mexican hotdogs and fries on July 2 served by Azteca restaurant; on July 9, tacos and quesadillas by Carlos Tacos; July 16 and 23 Mexican food by Azteca; and on July 30 hamburgers barbecued by the Ceres Fire Department.
