Right down the street from The Ogden, Clark County Parks and Recreation presents its FREE jazz concert series for the 29th year. Kick off summer with live music in the park, with shows taking place through June. The concerts usually start around 5:30-6:30pm and picnics, blankets and low back chairs are welcome.
