I'd like to point out another great activity this weekend: the summer concerts in the park. Each Sunday in June at 7 p.m. the Utah Premiere Brass presents a free family-friendly concert in North Park (500 North and 500 West), sponsored by the Covey Center. Bring lawn chairs and blankets and enjoy traditional marches, classical numbers, and movie/show tunes. The program includes a march around the park for children.
