Perfect weather and music made for an idyllic evening at the Lakefront Park band shell last Thursday evening, June 21.

LeRoy's River Minstrels, led by LeRoy Larson of Lakeland Shores, Minn., provided the entertainment. The performance was the second of 12 in the city of Hudson's "Concert in the Park" Series.

This weekend, there'll be plenty of free music in the park as part of the annual Hudson Booster Days celebration.

The Minnesota Orchestra will perform in the park at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, July 8. That concert is sponsored by The Phipps Center for the Arts.

The next regular Thursday evening concert is July 12, beginning at 7 p.m. It will feature the bluegrass band "Pickin' Up Steam."
