Lots of great music coming our way right here in town. If the first couple of free Thursday night concerts in Sandstone Park this year were any indication you better get there early to get a good seat close to the stage.

It even appears to be



I thought I would let you all know ahead of time who will be playing in the Town of Lyons Parks & Rec. free Sandstone Park Summer Concert Series this summer so you could mark your calendars. I have watched with admiration as these shows have grown over the years; with the last couple of years being a full park with lots of families, kids, dogs, and music lovers galore.

As the booker of bands, I have tried to keep the lineup as local as I can, and have chosen acts that play fun music that everyone will enjoy. There are only three bands on the schedule this summer that don't have at least one band member living in Lyons, and those, of course, have big followings and a long history in

This month, construction finishes on a dedicated and permanent home for the Longmont Museum’s collection of historic three-dimensional objects. The new “Museum Collections Center” was funded in part by a nearly $150,000 Museums for America grant from the Institute for Museum and Library Services, a federally administered program designed to transform communities through investing in museums.
