It was just announced today that Jack Johnson is coming back to Bend in July. Tickets will be available from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Feb. 16 on bendconcerts.com (this is a pre-sale use password local). You bet I will be buying tickets. This is a great family concert and we are so lucky to be able to have these opportunities to share great music in a safe environment with our kids. My tips are get there early. We love to sit on the far right side on the hill you get the best view and the kids can play on the rocks behind if they are so inclined. There is great food and drinks available for purchase in Les Schwab. My go to is always the Greek Food cart. They make the best gyros, they are fast and often have the smallest line. I am not sure who the food vendors will be for the 2017 season. I will be sure to update the Blog when this information is released. So if you are sitting in side like me today listening to the wind howl, watching the snow melt and day dreaming of a hot summer night. Get ready to buy your tickets on February 16th.
