Portland Concerts in The Park: Summer Concert SeriesWe are only two weeks away from kickoff of Portland Park's Summer Concert series. All the concerts are free and family-friendly.

This picture is from 2007 at the first Mt Tabor concert of the season. Mount Tabor has an ideal location for watching the concerts. It's warm, but has great shading so you are not getting scorched and your food and drink (beer! wine!) doesn't get too hot in your pic-i-nic basket.

    I’m confused because the dates and the days of the concerts do not match up at the beginning of this list. For example, it says all the concerts at Mt. Tabor Park are on Tuesdays, but the dates are all on Wednesdays!
