MORE than 3000 people took advantage of the summer weather to attend the first Music in the Park event at Falkland Park in Kinross last month.

Kicking off the City of Joondalup’s annual concert series were five-piece outfit Bang Bang Betty and the H-Bombs and west-coast hipsters Peta Lee and The Vibrolators who took the audience on a musical journey back to the 1950s and 60s.

The earlier start time proved popular with patrons, many arriving at 5pm for the children’s activities.

Joondalup Mayor Albert Jacob, who officially opened the event, said it was an impressive sight to look out from the stage and see thousands of people settle in for a free night of entertainment.

The second Music in the Park free concert will be staged on March 3 at Penistone Park in Greenwood featuring the Milford Street Shakers and Murphy’s Lore, both taking on the music of The Beatles.

The event opens at 5pm, with entertainment from 6pm to 8.30pm.

Guests are encouraged to bring a picnic.
