Summer Concerts Anne Arundel County
By Katy Agro Myers
Summer is here - and one of the things my family hasn't done enough of in the past is hitting up the summer concerts around town. We did this a few years ago and were able to grab some food and drinks and ice cream and just sit and listen and dance and laugh with the kids. We all loved it and I'm looking forward to hearing the sounds of local artists this summer! Check out our list by location:
