Calaveras Music In The Parks Series Will Return This Summer
After the long quiet summer of last year, music will return to Calaveras County Parks this year courtesy of the Calaveras Arts Council.
Kathy Mazzaferro, Calaveras County Arts Council Executive Director, was Thursday’s KVML “Newsmaker of the Day.”
Every concert will take place on Wednesday nights from 6:30 until 8:30 PM.
The concerts are free of charge. Donation jars will be passed around. Leashed pets are allowed and regular sized lawn chairs are encouraged. Lowback chairs are not encouraged as views could be easily blocked by others in front. Bring picnic items and beverages. Some food may be available for purchase depending on the venue (or park).
Mazzaferro said, “Please observe social distancing etiquette and wear a mask if you are not vaccinated in order to protect others.”
