Upcoming Dates

All concerts are held at Sidney Marcus Park.  In case of inclement weather, check our home page and the MLPA Facebook page for up-to-date plans.  Note that these events will be postponed in case of threatening weather.


Friday, October  20, 6:00-9:30, Music & a Movie Night

Carter Rude and Friends close out the concert season with a final performance in Sidney Marcus Park from 6-8 followed by the return of Movie Night.  So pack up the kids, blankets/chairs, and a cooler to enjoy a final evening of free entertainment at Sidney Marcus Park.

The band plays until it’s dark and then the park becomes an outdoor theater for Disney’s feature film, The BFG.  Steven Spielberg directs this classic Roald Dahl story of a young girl’s amazing adventures with a big, friendly giant.

Bring your own picnic or choose from the food truck offerings–either way it’s sure to be a great time with friends.  Willy’s Food Truck returns with Mexicana fare or you can choose from Doggy Dogg cart’s assortment of dogs, brats, and wurst with all the trimmings.  King of Pops will also be on hand with popsicles to cool the evening down.
