From 6:30 to 8 p.m., a free concert will be offered each week for a total of seven concerts showcasing a variety of the area’s top musical talents. The Prairie du Chien Parks and Recreation Department and Jaycees are sponsoring the concert series. Bring your lawn chairs, blankets and snacks.

June 25—16 Strings and a Stick. This local trio, which includes a fiddle, will get your toes tapping and hands clapping as they play a mix of country, Celtic, bluegrass and Cajun.
