Cornwall Ontario — The City of Cornwall’s popular Arts in the Park series is set to return this summer with 21 nights of free family-friendly entertainment in Lamoureux Park.
This year’s Arts in the Park schedule includes a mix of new and returning performers – the majority of them local – along with the return of the popular outdoor movie in the park on Saturday, July 19th (movie to be determined, weather permitting).
“I’m excited about the line-up we’ve secured this year,” said Lorne Taillon, Leisure Arts Coordinator. “We have something for all musical tastes, and the outdoor movie is always a popular night.”
The series, now in its 29th season, gets underway this week with performances by Seaway Winds on Wednesday, June 25th and Bruce Ciccarelli on Thursday, June 26th. It continues on select evenings throughout July and August and wraps up with a final performance by Graham Greer on Wednesday, August 20th (the full schedule is listed below).
The free events are held at the Lion’s Club Bandshell in Lamoureux Park and evening performances begin at 7 pm (weather permitting). Free parking is available behind the bandshell and at the neighbouring Cornwall Civic Complex.
