Spectacular line-up of life music, movies offers family fun for all
Treedome and WINONArts have announced a new, socially distanced four-part event series titled “Lake Park Drive-In: Music and Movies” set to take place on four Saturday nights in October featuring outdoor live concerts and film screenings at the Lake Park Bandshell in Winona. With a combination of vehicle spots and socially distanced outdoor seating, “Lake Park Drive-In” will bring outdoor events back to Winona in a COVID-19-safe environment.
“This has been a crazy year, and we are excited to be able to bring some family fun back to Winona,” said Nathaniel Nelson, production director of Treedome.
The first event on October 3 will feature a concert by local blues guitarist Mike Munson, followed by a screening of the 1942 masterpiece, “Casablanca,” starring Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman.
On October 17, the superhero film “Black Panther” starring Chadwick Boseman will be shown following a performance by City Pages best concert winner and Twin Cities rapper NUR-D.
The following week, on October 24, City Pages’ Picked to Click winner and Minneapolis rock darling Gully Boys will perform before a screening of the Bugs Bunny and Michael Jordan-starring “Space Jam.”
Finally, the series will wrap up on October 31 with a performance by local Indie rockers Karate Chop, Silence, and the classic Tim Burton-directed spookfest, “Beetlejuice.”
Seating is split into three categories: vehicle drive-in, benches for groups of one-to-four, and grassy area for groups with children. All spots are limited and reservations are required. Masks are required for all non-vehicle seating, and personal hand sanitizer or hand wipes are recommended.
Tickets may be reserved at https://www.eventbrite.com/o/treedome-31256737227, or call 507-398-5424 with a name and preferred seating option. Spots are free, but donations are accepted online to keep the program going into the future.
