Sip of Summer
On Wednesday, June 20th, the Manhattan Park District and their sponsors hosted the first in the Sip of Summer Concert series. This was a free event which took place at Central Park. Many families came out to enjoy the cool, evening air to the sounds of Johnny Russler and the Beach Bum Band. While kids played in the Splash Pad, rode bikes and skateboards, and danced to the music, parents spent a relaxing evening listening to songs of the islands while enjoying refreshments from the concession stand. It was a fantastic evening and a great start to the summer. The Manhattan Park District also planned 2 more concerts for July 18th and August 15th.
On July 18th, the second concert in the series was held. The band was called Spoken Four and provided music that delighted all who attended.
The last concert in the Sip of Summer Series was held on August 15th. Residents listened to the country music provided by Hillbilly Rockstarz!
