Now in its 14th year, the series of Concerts at the Cove has returned — with the first concert set for tonight (Friday, June 14) at 5:30 p.m. Other free concerts will take place on Friday, July 12, and Friday, August 9.
During the shows (from 5:30-7:30 p.m.), the Crab Cove Visitor Center will stay open for kids of all ages.
The Rotary Club of Alameda, East Bay Regional Park District and the Regional Parks Foundation work together to host the popular events.
Tonight’s band is Fleetwood Mask — a Fleetwood Mac tribute band. The Bob Claire Orchestra will perform on July 7, followed by the Battle of the Bands between Bear Lincoln, Rudolph and Soulstice on the second Friday in August.
There can be as many as 2,000 people at the concerts, so organizers suggest that Alamedans ride their bikes to the even.
Visitors can bring their own food but no alcoholic beverages. Also, there will be food, snacks and drinks for sale, starting at 4:30 p.m.
