Rockin’ in the Park: Rosemont releases summer concert lineup

Rosemont has released the lineup for its summer concert series, which features classic cover bands across 18 nights, with a fireworks show closing many of the performances.

The shows on the park’s great lawn are free to attend, with food and beverages available for purchase at nearby tents. Outside food and coolers are prohibited, officials say.
