Entertainment in the Park returns; first concert Thursday

Children’s performer Jim Gill played to a sold-out crowd at 2014’s Black History Month Blues Series at Ellis Library & Information Center.
Gill is performing July 13 at St. Mary’s Park.

After two fragmented seasons, the full Entertainment in the Park series returns this summer to St. Mary’s Park. The first offering is Thursday.

“Our 2020 concerts were canceled, and in 2021 we held two concerts in August,” Amy Mason, recreation programmer for the City of Monroe’s Parks and Recreation department, said.

All offerings are free.

Opening the season is the Tone Chimes group at the Monroe County Intermediate School District.

A big children’s show is set for this summer. Jim Gill will perform July 13, which is a Wednesday. Other musical events are on Thursdays.

Gill is an award-winning musician known for silly songs and children’s music. He’s visited Monroe in the past. The concert is offered by Monroe County Parks and Recreation and Great Start Monroe.
