Lake Park has had a tradition of outdoor lawn concerts, dating back to at least the early 1900s.

Lake Park unveils new Summer Stage at Musical Mondays kickoff

Lake Park will officially open its new, permanent Summer Stage this Monday, July 2 to kick off its 15th Musical Mondays season.

The new stage, located near Park Picnic Area #3, is made of a timber frame superstructure over a concrete base. It replaces the uncovered plywood platform stage used in years past.

A special ceremony will start at 6 p.m. to officially open the stage. Milwaukee County Parks Director Sue Black will also be in attendance to usher in the 2012 season of free live music.

The season will start with a live performance from Liberty Call, a high-energy U.S. Navy show band from the Great Lakes Naval Base.

Lawn seating and picnic tables are available. Carry-ins and picnics are welcome.

The Musical Mondays series will continue weekly from 6:30 to 8 p.m. through Aug. 27. A kid-friendly Wonderful Wednesdays will also take place at the Summer Stage July 11, 18, 25 and Aug. 1 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.

More information about this year's lineup at the Lake Park Summer Stage can be found online.
