Southeast Michigan Summer Concert Series

Southeast Michigan Summer Concert Series 

Summer is my favorite season.  We love to spend plenty of time outside soaking up the summer rays and enjoying the long summer nights.  Free concerts all around Metro Detroit make the summer even more special providing families the opportunity to spend quality time together.  I am so thrilled to team up with my favorite bloggers to bring you a list that covers five counties of great summer concerts in southeast Michigan.
