The 2015 Lake Anna Summer Concert Series began mid June with a couple of rain outs. The concerts are every Friday at 7:30 pm and end September 4th. The concerts are easily accessed from a ride on the TowPath trail by utilizing the TowPath connector bridge at Robinson Avenue, and then coming into Downtown via the Robinson Avenue Bridge. You can either follow the Magic Mile purple arrows or make a right turn on to Wooster Rd and a left on to Park and follow it to the Lake. The new bike racks on the information booth side of the lake as well as the gazebo side allow you lock your bike up and enjoy the concert.
The Lunch Time Concert Series will begin on Wednesday, July 15. The Wednesday concerts begin at 11:30 am and are a fun way to spend a day off.
