Concerts, troops and sports shorts in Lake Barrington Shores

We survived an interminable winter and now — poof! — in the blink of an eye, summer is nearly over.

The final show in our concerts in the park series was held a few Saturdays ago, with shade, sun and gentle breezes. Luckily, we were rewarded with beautiful weather for all three outdoor concerts, held on the marina lawn.

“Midnight,” a six man band, performed 1960s, ’70s and beyond pop, rock and soul covers of songs by Chicago, Crosby, Stills and Nash, the Beach Boys, Stevie Wonder, the Beatles and others.

Residents picnicked, danced, sang, socialized and got nostalgic during the two hour show.
