Pops in the Park #2 at Glen Hall Park
It was a beautiful night. Perfect for spending time with friends, sipping wine, and chowing down on great food while music filled the air. Playing in Sacramento's blues scene for ten years, Aaron King and the Imperials entertained Pops in the Park attendees on Saturday night with their "American Music" fusing blues, jazz, funk, contry and rock.
As for the food... we went with the Italian theme this time with a variety of imported cheeses, olives, great salads, an almond torte, and of course Prosecco!
Saturday the 20th it's the George Bruno Big Band at Bertha Henschel Park with KCRA'a Mike Teselle as Emcee.
Saturday the 27th Kate Gaffney performs at McKinley Park with emcee KCRA's Edie Lambert.
A Little About Pops In The Park:
Former Councilmember Josh Pane and a number of community members started the East Sacramento Pops in the Park in 1991, with an afternoon concert. In 1995, Councilmember Steve Cohn transformed Pops in the Park into a series of evening concerts. Cohn also saw an opportunity to raise money for our under-funded neighborhood parks while bringing free, quality entertainment to the community. Sponsorship and advertising dollars, as well as proceeds from the sale of food and beverages at the events, have been used since 1995 to fund the events, enhance our neighborhood parks, bring improvements to the neighborhood and provide youth athletic scholarships.
They encourage carpooling, walking or bicycling to all events. FREE valet bicycle parking is being provided by Sacramento Area Bicycle Advocates (SABA) for June 13th, 20th, and 27th concerts.
