The town of New Lebanon’s “Music in the Park” series returns for the first program since 2019, on Sunday, August 1st. The town’s Community Picnic will take place at the same time in a combined event to celebrate New Lebanon and our emergence from the restrictions of “COVID Year 2020”.
As in the past, the Music in the Park bands will have links to our community. First up at 1:00 PM, Linda Worster and David Grover, “honorary residents” of New Lebanon, will bring their magical mix of folk, soft rock and original music to our pavilion.
The second band, starting at 2:45 PM, will be New Lebanon’s The Echoes (Tistrya Houghtling, Judy Zimmer, and Doug Banker, with help from the Houghtling kids). They will be playing many of your favorite folk, pop and rock tunes with ukuleles and guitars, with Julian on drums. Kids will have fun with giant lawn games and a bouncy house.
The Community Picnic is hosted by the New Lebanon Recreation Commission, which provides grilled burgers and hot dogs (donated by community businesses), donated soft drinks, condiments, sweet corn, etc. People who attend are encouraged to bring their favorite side dish or dessert to share.
Craft beer by local Roaring 20’s Brewery will be available for purchase as well. Community members may volunteer to assist with setup, cleaning of the pavilion tables, etc. Also needed is someone to direct parking, primarily early in the event as people arrive.
