County Park picnic and concert on Sunday, June 17June 13th, 2012 by Morgan, Policy Coordinator
Have anything planned for this coming Sunday at noon? How about a picnic and free concert at Mono Lake County Park? It’s a perfect way to kick off your summer—come have lunch, relax in the shade of the cottonwoods, and enjoy live music.
You can bring your own lunch, but a really tasty lunch will be for sale for $10 per meal at the park: chicken and veggie kebabs with mango-barbeque or pineapple-teriyaki sauce, cilantro-lime rice, fresh salad, and a drink. All proceeds from lunch benefit the Lee Vining High School, so it goes to a great cause.
This year’s musical artist is the local Adam Burns Band, a group of four talented musicians known for their vivacious live shows. They draw big crowds out of the backcountry every time they play at the Mobil in Lee Vining, and they’ll have your feet tapping in no time.
To get to County Park from Lee Vining, head north on Highway 395 approximately 5 miles and turn right on Cemetery Road. Go down the hill and look for parking directions. Carpooling from Lee Vining is highly recommended.
