COVID-19 has left an indelible impression on the world at large and certainly Coronado has not been spared economically or culturally. Last week two of the city’s iconic events, the Fourth of July Parade and all that day’s attendant events were cancelled. The following day Concerts in the Park was cancelled, with a glimmer of hope existing that a concert or two could be held.

Concerts President Cathy Brown provided her thoughts on what would have been the 50th Anniversary of Concerts in the Park. “The best we can hope for is maybe, and this is a big maybe, the last week of August and/or Labor Day Sunday, Sept. 6. These dates are based on the schools being back in session and we get the okay from the City. Also, only Coronado local bands would play those dates. Of course, if anything changes, and we’re allowed to have the concerts, the Board can make it happen very quickly. We will celebrate our 50th Anniversary next year in 2021. I can’t wait to see you all again, dancing at the Concerts.” more >>
