The St. Charles Park District brings the summer Concerts in the Park series to St. Charles' historic downtown for families and friends to enjoy the great outdoors and some fabulous music. This summer's first concert performance will be Pamela Rose and Windy City Country at 7 p.m. Thursday, June 2, at the Lincoln Park Gazebo, located along Main Street between Fourth and Fifth streets.

With a fresh, energetic flavor and unique style, this band re-creates many of the classics and today's favorite country and rock 'n roll hits. With guitar, drums, bass, fiddle, pedal steel, mandolin and keyboard, these musicians belt out strong vocals and create great harmonies with a solid and slammin' rhythm section.

Bring your family and friends for a picnic in the park! Settle in before the free concert and enjoy picnic-style offerings at reasonable rates from downtown St. Charles restaurants and local vendors including Domino's Pizza, Mall-BQ, Kimmer's Ice Cream and Must Love Dogs. Alcohol is not permitted at Lincoln Park. Guests are encouraged to get to the park early for better seating. Bring your lawn chairs and blankets, too.

Upcoming concerts include: Rico Jams on June 16; 1969 on June 23; Leslie Hunt on June 30; Gizzae on July 7; On The House on July 14; Gina Glocksen on July 21; How Far to Austin on July 28; Hey Jimmy on Aug. 4; Crown Vics on Aug. 11; and Howard and the White Boys on Aug. 18.
