Music in the Park to return to Crosslake


Music in the Park will return to Crosslake Town Square this month.

With the most recent announcements from Gov. Tim Walz providing additional options for gatherings, the Crosslake Ideal Lions Club reported the 2020 Music in the Park season will be allowed.

Previously because of the coronavirus pandemic, the concert series in the park was canceled with expectations to return in 2021. With the new guidelines, music in the park will return from 6-8 p.m. Saturday, June 27, and continue on summer Saturdays through August.

“Grab your lawn chairs and head on down to Town Square - just make sure you're at least 6 feet from your neighbors - we want to social distance while we're having fun!” the Lions said on Facebook.
