Get ready for another great summer of movies, concerts and much more, with the return this June of Columbia Association’s (CA) annual Lakefront Summer Festival.
The Lakefront Summer Festival begins on June 17 and runs through Sept. 14 and includes family-friendly offerings — all of which are free — nearly every day of the week.
Movies will be screened at Lake Kittamaqundi under the stars on Mondays and Fridays, starting on June 17 until Aug. 19. Films shown on Mondays are appropriate for even the youngest audience members, with G- and PG-rated selections. The Friday movie selections will be rated PG and PG-13. And then, from Aug. 23 through Sept. 14, CA will show movies every Friday and Saturday — and on the Sunday during Labor Day Weekend.
All showings will begin at dusk. The complete movie schedule will be released soon.
More than 40 nights of music are scheduled for Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays on nearly every evening from June 18 through Aug. 18, with artists spanning a variety of genres. And on Tuesdays in July, come out to see talented youth musicians perform at CA’s Teen Open Mic nights. Stay tuned for a complete concert schedule. Concerts will begin at 8 p.m. on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, and at 6:30 p.m. on Sundays.
Finally, CA’s annual “Dancing Under the People Tree” free dance lessons will be hosted every Friday. More information on that program can be found online at bit.ly/dancingpeople.
