Summer concerts are back and this Friday we will be featuring the band The Leaf Jumpers at Washington Park beginning at 6:30 p.m.
The Leaf Jumpers are a long-running rock band that are making their first appearance here in the Groton Concerts in the Park series. If you like some good ‘ol fashioned rock and roll with a 90s flavor this is the band for you. Rocking out songs by Counting Crows, The Police, U2, Elvis Costello and much more, Leaf Jumpers will have you singing along all night long.
Last week’s concert had The Usual Lebowskis rocking the park with come pristine 90s-style alternative rock. It also once again showed that we could successfully hold a concert with the safety precautions in place necessary to have a gathering of this sort. Once again we had a selection of food trucks to help feed the masses. This week the trucks will be Supreme Hot Dog, Rolling Tomato Pizza and Robin’s Ice Cream truck.
The City of Groton takes the COVID-19 Pandemic very seriously and will be making accommodations to ensure the safety of all who choose to come to the shows. Due to the outdoor nature of the shows and the vastness of Washington Park attendees should be able to maintain a healthy distance from others, but we will also be making the following precautions:
As with everything during the health crisis, everything is subject to change. There is nothing more important to us at the City of Groton and Groton Utilities than the health and well-being of our fellow residents, so if it appears that having Concerts in the Park is not safe for all, then we will adjust the schedule again or cancel the 2020 season.
With all that said, here is the Concert Schedule for the 2020 season. We hope to see you there.
