Now that the summer is almost officially here, it’s time to put some of the free concerts and movies at Mizner Park Amphitheater in Boca Raton on your schedule. The City’s “Music and Movies Under the Stars” series will run from June 3rd though August 19th. Best of all, this particular series is FREE!
It starts today
The first FREE concert is tonight, Friday, June 10th at 7:30PM. The concert “Summer Enchanted Evening” will be conducted by Kyle Prescott and will feature music from Leroy Anderson, Aaron Coopland, Elgar, Dvorak, Mozart, Strauss, and Tchaikovsky. Blankets and chairs can be brought or you can also rent a chair for $5. Only catch is that no outside food or beverages are allowed. The City needs to make money somehow! Food and beverages will be available for purchase. Also, keep Fido home as well (no pets will be permitted during any of the Summer in the City series.
If You Enjoy Tribute Bands…
If tribute bands are more your thing, the Tribute Band Series, also part of The City of Boca Raton’s Summer in the City Series, will begin with a Billy Joel Tribute on June 17, followed by a Led Zeppelin Tribute on June 24, a David Bowie Tribute on July 22nd and a Bob Marley Tribute by Ruffhouse on July 29th. The Tribute series will end on August 12th with an Eagles Tribute. With each of the Tribute Band dates noted, there will also be a Beer Garden where you can sample a variety of craft beers. Admission to all shows in the series is FREE.
The Summer in the City series will end on Friday night August 19th with The Symphonia playing an array of popular favorite tunes including a solo by Jeff Kaye.
Or If You Prefer Movies…
As for movie options? If you haven’t had the pleasure of seeing a movie in the amphitheater it’s well worth the trip. It’s a great experience for any age as you truly feel a sense of community. My only suggestion is to get there EARLY as it will fill up quickly.
The Minions Movie (PG) will be shown on Friday July 8th at 8PM. Same rules apply, please leave outside food and beverages at home. The Delivery Dudes will be available to take orders from local restaurants and bring it back to the amphitheater for you and yours during any of the movies. Star War, the Force Wakens (PG-13) will be presented on Friday, August 5th at 8PM.
Hope you enjoy the experience as much as I did last year. If you see me there, please say “Hello.”
