Starting in early July, the Elizabeth Park Summer Concert series will feature some of the best local and fan-favorite musicians and bands for your listening (and hopefully live viewing) pleasure! At press time, our community is in Phase 3 of the governor's Healthy Washington: Roadmap to Recovery which allows small crowds to gather and enjoy outdoor entertainment. Based on this plan and current safety and health department protocols, up to 400 people can gather for live concerts. If this plan is still in place in early July, we will begin using a new weekly reservation system. Details re- garding how to reserve your own designated listening area may be found at theeldredgesociety.org or by visiting their Facebook page @Elizabeth Park Summer Concert Series-Bellingham,WA If community gatherings are not permissible, concerts will once again be streamed virtually on Facebook and YouTube. Either way you will be able to safely enjoy some great music outdoors in lovely Elizabeth Park (while masked and keep- ing physically distanced of course!) or from the comfort of your own home (or maybe neighborhood block watch party!) Come join us and get ready for some good times and great tunes this summer. Concerts start at 6pm. Rec-Tivities: Family Activity Kits The kits just keep coming!
