BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - Despite Berkeley Heights’ original summer kickoff concert being canceled due to inclement weather, Wednesday night’s event was a huge success, with several hundred community members arriving at Memorial Park by 7:30 p.m. to enjoy the evening.

This time around, the weather was absolutely perfect and there wasn’t a single cloud in the sky. The crowd was primarily made up of families, who settled down onto blankets and chairs, and made themselves comfortable on the sprawling field.

The entire Berkeley Heights Summer Concert series is sponsored largely in part by the Rotary Club of Berkeley Heights, as well as the Berkeley Aquatic Club. Other sponsors include the Suburban Chamber of Commerce, as well as several other local businesses.

In addition, representatives from eMedicalOffices were on site, providing free electronic fans, first-aid kits and bottled water to concert-goers, in an effort to take precautions due to the blazing heat.

The band Parrot Beach was the featured entertainment of the night, and played several popular songs to the delight of the youngest attendees, who were dancing around the stage.

There are still three more concert left in the series, with next week’s event featuring the Big Band Evolution, an 18-piece band specializing in modern and classic hits. In addition the concert that was rained out last week, featuring Beatlemania Again, has been rescheduled for Aug. 14.

Berkeley Heights is also holding several other community events in the upcoming weeks, including a showing of Hotel Transylvania tomorrow night at Memorial Park, as a part of the “Movies in the Park” series.

Street Hassle donated the use of all their equipment for the bands to use for both nights.
