There's a party in Tupper Lake and you're invited!
This summer marks the second year of the Summer Sunset Series at the Tupper Lake Lions Bandshell in Flanders Park, and the lineup is looking great. And if the entertainment isn't enticing enough, think of the scene: free shows set against a backdrop of the sun setting over a sparkling Adirondack lake. It doesn't get much better than that!
The weekly performances happen in Flanders Park every Tuesday at 7 p.m. from July 3 through August 27. The only exception is the first concert, which is on a Wednesday. Grab your dinner to go, pull up a blanket, and enjoy Shakespeare in the Parks or rock, blues, folk, funk, swing, or opera, depending on when you're there.
