Tusk Set to Headline Summer Arts Festival Concert at Echo Lake Park, July 12

All are welcome to visit Echo Lake Park in Mountainside and Oak Ridge Park in Clark this summer, for free outdoor concerts sponsored by the Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders.

The Union County Summer Arts Festival Concert Series continues at Echo Lake Park in Mountainside on Wednesday evening, July 12 featuring Tusk, featuring the great hits of Fleetwood Mac. Show time is scheduled for 7:30 pm.

The five seasoned, well-respected musicians comprising Tusk have been making music together in various combinations and styles, in original outfits and in cover bands, for over twenty-five years.

The show is free, and visitors are urged to pack a picnic basket, bring lawn chairs or blankets. Refreshments and snacks will also be available from Café Gallo and the Good Humor Man.
