Free music in Glenhaven Park

We’re just a little more than a week away from Roseway’s first Portland Parks & Recreation summer concert!

Pete Krebs & his Portland Playboys will deliver old-school Western swing beginning at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, July 28, at Glenhaven Park. Look for the stage on the NE Siskiyou Street side of the park, near the playground. Kids art activities begin at 6:15 p.m.

This free family-friendly event is free and open to all ages, and well-mannered dogs on leashes are welcome.

Bring a picnic, or bring cash to buy goodies from Whole Foods Market and Masala Pop Indian spiced popcorn. If you’re 21 or older, you can also bring in your own wine and beer, thanks to a special event permit.

During intermission, organizers will pass the hat to help raise money for next summer. The hope is to expand to a multi-concert series in 2013. (You can also make an online 
tax-deductible donation to the Portland Parks Foundation. You can earmark your donation to benefit our Roseway parks in the future — Glenhaven Park for summer concerts or Wellington Park for summer movies. Donate $10 or more by Sept. 15, and get an in-store coupon for 25% off your next Columbia Sportswear visit at any Portland-area location.)

This promises to be a great event. Thanks to our sponsors for making this happen! Please support them and look for some of them at the concert — Albina Community Bank, Brickhouse Pizzeria, Dharma Rain Zen Center, Kristan Knapp Fund, Laurelwood Public House & Brewery, Madison South Neighborhood Association, Multnomah County Cultural Coalition, Oregon Cultural Trust, Pacific Power, Park City Pub, Realty Trust Group (Sue Coon and James Coon), Roseway Neighborhood Association and Roseway Roots daycare.
