With the first day of summer just two weeks away, there's now even more reason to look forward to warm weather - an outdoor concert series in Portland!

Lincoln Park, located in Downtown Portland at Congress and Franklin streets, is a gorgeous spot in the heart of the city that is under utilized and often overlooked. A local organization called Friends Of Lincoln Park is looking to change that.

They've announced a new summer concert series called the LoveLincolnPark Summer Concert series. With dates in July and August, the park will host some great local musicians representing several different genres of music. Acts scheduled to perform include the Blues ProphetsMes AmisEmilia Dahlin, and The Renovators. All shows are on Tuesday nights from 6 to 7:30.

This sounds like a lot of fun, and I plan on hitting up at least a few of them! For more information, you can check out Friends of Lincoln Park here.
