Free concerts in Burlington park

Posted: Updated:

Friday was a beautiful day to be outside in Vermont-- perfect weather to catch a concert in the park. And music lovers do just that every Wednesday and Friday in Burlington's City Hall Park. The lunchtime concerts started in 2012 with help from a National Endowment of the Arts grant.

Burlington City Arts is using the concerts as one part of a bigger plan to reinvigorate Burlington's downtown green space. Friday, Dave Keller performed.

"It really just encourages positive behavior and use of the park in really positive ways, and you see kids and families running around and enjoying the space that we have as an extension of Church Street. It's made a world of difference," said Kerri Macon of Burlington City Arts.

The free concerts are every Wednesday and Friday from noon to 1 p.m. Click here for the schedule.
