Live music fills the alfresco space at 40th and Walnut Streets for the annual 40th Street Summer Series.
Once a month every month this summer, talented musicians and performers perform an array of acts for attendees at the series of free outdoor concerts.
The series kicks off on Saturday, June 28 with performances by Spoken Hand Percussion Orchestra and Music Over Matter. The free concert also includes such festive family-friendly entertainment as fire artists, face painting, jugglers, balloon art and more.
Plus, be on the look out for complimentary (first come, first served) Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream samples and other treats to be handed out during the performance.
All concerts take place on the green behind the Walnut Street Free Library at 40th and Walnut streets, begin at 6 p.m. and are totally free.
