For nearly 20 years, through the efforts of Councilmember Steve Cohn, countless volunteers and many talented artists, Pops in the Park has raised money for East Sac parks while also providing a month’s worth of great live music, food and fun. And this year is no exception.
Starting this Saturday, Pops in the Park kicks off at East Portal Park at 6pm. Bring your lawn chairs or blankets and be sure to get there early to get a good spot. The Chris Gardner Band, specializing in their own unique brand of country-rock music, will be performing. The evening’s emcees are B Street Theatre’s Buck Busfield and Bill Blake. You can either bring your own refreshments (they are requesting no outside alcohol) or purchase them from Burr’s Fountain, Clark’s Corner and the East Sac-Midtown Kiwanis Club.
And here’s the schedule for the rest of the Pops in the Park series:
June 14- Glenn Hall Park, The Count
June 21- Bertha Henschel Park, John Skinner Band
June 28- McKinley Park, Garratt Wilken & The Parrotheads: A Tribute to Jimmy Buffett
