Outdoor Music in the Park Events: What to Wear? What to Bring?

Perhaps now more than ever, the ability to spend a summer evening outside with loved ones and live music is not something we will take for granted. But how to you make sure you’re prepared to be able to fully enjoy the experience?

For the most part, attire is casual to business casual. Summer evenings can be unpredictable, 75 and sunny can feel a lot different than 75 after the sun goes down. Bring a sweater or sweatshirt, especially for little ones.

Since many of these venues are park-like atmospheres, we recommend you plan to bring your own seating. Of course, camping chairs and blankets are ideal. Bringing one more blanket than necessary is often a good bet.

Occasionally concessions are available, but it is better to plan ahead and bring water and snacks, or even a full picnic dinner. Just keep in mind that more than likely there will not be tables.

Keeping the Little Ones Happy
Remember the attention span of small children and be prepared with drinks, snacks, and activities such as bubbles, board games, coloring books, and outdoor toys. It is important to point out to plan ahead for the possibility that bathrooms may not be available.

Check out some of the amazing Splash Pads in Metro Detroit. You can also visit a great local park.
