The Union County Summer Arts Festival 2010 concert series continues on Wednesday, July 14, with the Bob Marley Tribute Show at Echo Lake Park. The Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders, led by Chairman Daniel P. Sullivan, invites the public to attend this free concert of reggae music which begins at 7:30 p.m. on the border of Mountainside and Westfield.
Picture yourself relaxing on a Caribbean island as the Bob Marley Tribute Show delivers an inspiring performance of music by the great Jamaican reggae master, Bob Marley, and the Wailers. If you like "Jammin'," there will be plenty of irresistible reggae to get you in the mood to "Get Up, Stand Up." Whether the band plays "Is This Love?" or "Exodus" or "Stir It Up," the songs are sure to lift your spirits and the music will remind you to "Wake Up and Live." "Bring the entire family for an evening of reggae in Echo Lake Park," said Freeholder Chairman Sullivan. "Pack a picnic basket, bring lawn chairs or blankets to sit on, and enjoy the Caribbean sounds of Bob Marley under the stars."
The Union County information van will be at the concert site with knowledgeable staff from the Union County Offices of Consumer Affairs and Veterans' Affairs on hand to answer questions and offer information about interesting programs and activities that are available to Union County residents.
