Each year the Puyallup Parks & Recreation brings us Concerts in the Park. The 2016 events will be held at Puyallup’s Pioneer Park (325 South Meridian) and Bradley Lake Park on South Hill (531 31st Ave S). This year they will have “Noon Tunes for Kids” which will run in the afternoon for an hour. It’s a mixture of music and activities for the kids. The “Noon Tunes for Kids” starts on July 5th 2016. The Family Series Concerts in the Park starts June 30th 2016 and runs every Thursday until August 25th 2016. The first event will be at Bradley Lake Park on June 30th at 6:30pm. The Beatniks will be rocking the park with their mix of classic rock. There are so many great events this year from Doctorfunk (funk & soul) July 21st, Bobby Sox & The Juke Box (50’s & 60’s) July 28th, Slim Wizzy (blues) Aug 4th, Heart By Heart (2 original Heart members) Aug 18th, and finally ending with Spike & The Impalers Aug 25 at Bradley Lake Park.
On August 13th 2016, there will be a community campout held at Bradley Lake Park from 6:30pm – 8pm. The Afrodisiacs will be playing and they are a really great disco band. They are quite popular in the nightlife scene around Tacoma and Seattle. It’s free (no cover).
If you haven’t experienced Concerts in the Park before, you certainly will want to check it out. The Puyallup Community really comes together and it’s a great way to meet all your neighbors. Bring a chair, blanket/s, and some snacks to enjoy as well. Prepare to dance as the sun goes down in one of Puyallup’s most historic parks – Pioneer Park.
Here is the official schedule (PDF) for the 2016 concerts in the park. It includes both Pioneer Park and Bradley Park events. In the event of rain, all concerts will be moved inside the Pioneer Park Pavilion. The Saturday event at Bradley Lake Park (Afrodisiacs) would be cancelled.
Are there going to be movies in the park again this year?
Yes, they are actually. It’s not on this schedule so it maybe a separate activity. Here is the list of movies and date/times: https://www.co.pierce.wa.us/index.aspx?NID=3328
