Summer Series for Concerts and Movies in the Park Announced

Ontario Town Square is bursting with entertainment!

ONTARIO, California (Tuesday, April 19, 2016) Ontario Town Square, operated by the Ontario Convention Center, has announced the entertainment line-up for The Summer Series of 2016.  Every Wednesday and Friday from May 4 thru August 12 the community hub for entertainment will be full of families enjoying the summer evenings.  The Summer Concerts in the Park on Wednesdays and the Movies in the Park on Fridays organized by the City of Ontario Recreation & Community Services provides free entertainment for the entire family.  The community is invited to bring a lawn chair or blanket to the grass area at Ontario Town Square.  In addition to the entertainment, food and vendors will be available.

Ontario Convention Center has brought the Heritage Education Group and Certified Farmer’s Markets to Ontario Town Square this summer.  “We are excited to announce the original goal of a weekly Certified Farmers Market at Ontario Town Square has come to fruition for the Wednesday Concerts in the Park” said Michael Krouse, President & CEO of the Ontario Convention Center.  Since the beginning Ontario Town Square has provided a place where family and friends can gather; in 2015 the summer series attendance was 42,000.  The attendance is anticipated to increase significantly with the new shopping opportunity of the Certified Farmer’s Market.  The Heritage Education Group is a collective of culturally progressive citizens whose goal is to enrich the lives of children and their families through education, public health, and art.

The City of Ontario Recreation & Community Services is celebrating a 20th Anniversary for Concerts in the Park.  Although every Wednesday will be special with a live concert for the community, on July 6th an official anniversary celebration will commence.   The concerts are live music by some of the best cover bands in the area with a variety of music that will appeal to all.  The Summer Concert Series begins on May 4 and continues on every Wednesday evening from 5pm to 9pm, with the live concert starting at 7pm.

Movies in the Park on Friday nights are some of the top rated films that the entire family will enjoy.  Starting at 7pm families are invited to enjoy kids’ activities until it is dark enough to show the movie.  Food and beverage vendors will be on site making it a fun evening to dine under the stars as well.
