Sit back and enjoy a summer evening of musical entertainment with The StingRays from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Friday, June 7, on the back patio of the Lost Valley Visitor Center in Glacial Park, Route 31 and Harts Road in Ringwood.

The StingRays play the greatest music ever written with the energy, passion and authenticity of the artists whose music they love. The music, their rapport with the audience, and the famous StingRay moves have made them repeated favorites at events throughout the Midwest. The group loves to interact with the audience through trivia, dance contests, and strolling through the audience. They are sure to have you up dancing and singing along.
