Lakewood is now charging for their concert series – and seeing as though there are plenty of other things to do for FREE, I’m NOT posting their series. (Read – hey Lakewood, that’s kind of lame).  If you are interested they do have it posted on their website.

*Of course, these concert line-ups may change please check with the city or location before going to any of these free concerts. We also make no guarantees that the weather will be awesome.
