There's nothing like live music in the park on a warm summer's night. Especially when the music is free and the park is beautiful Mears Park in downtown St Paul.
Every Thursday during the summer, from 6 to 9pm, June through August, the Music in Mears organizers bring us a free concert in the heart of downtown. Featuring great local bands, such as Hookers and Blow and The Hopefuls, the concerts bring the community together for some good old fashioned fun. Each week a different local restaurant offers up some yummy food and drink to keep the party going.
In addition to the live bands, Music in Mears also features six weeks of full length movies beginning the end of July. This year the movies kick off on July 23, with The School of Rock. You can find the full schedule of music and movies on their website.
When you come, bring a lawn chair or blanket to make yourself more comfortable. Mears Park is a beautiful setting to relax with some great music, movies and people watching!
