Forest Hills Park’s last picnic in the park concert of the summer is on the last Saturday of this month. Details from Friends of Forest Hills Playground:
Join Friends of Forest Hills Playground + The Erich Cabe Team for our last free, all-ages summer concert at the Forest Hills Park amphitheater (3200 block of Brandywine Street, by the tennis courts). The band is Jim and Gina (more below). They will be performing some upbeat favorites from the last few decades.
The music starts at 5:30pm, and the show will wrap up by 7pm.
This concert is sponsored by the Erich Cabe Team, who has supported all three summer concerts and the park’s April clean up.
