Truckee Summer Music Series
Every summer Truckee-Donner Recreation & Park Districtpresents a free SUMMER MUSIC SERIES every Wednesday at "Salty" Gebhardt Amphitheather at the Truckee River Regional Park. This is a fun event for the whole family. The concert starts at 6:30pm and ends around 8:00 pm. My family likes to pack a picnic basket and gets there around 6pm with some low back chairs and some throws in case the weather gets chilly later on. We usually see a lot of friends and have a chance to catch up with each other for a while.
Each week TRUCKEE SUMMER MUSIC SERIES features a different band with diverse music styles such as country, latin, rock'n roll,blues...These bands are sponsored by local businesses and they give an outstanding performance year after year. Near the front of the stage is a clearing that allow people to get up and dance. Quite often, you will find a large crowd moving to the lively music.
