NORMAN — The lawn at Lions Park on Sunday was still pretty full for the Summer Breeze Concert Series, even with the humid 90-degree temperature, but with summer coming to an end, so will the outdoor performances.
The concert series is already halfway over, and with Honeylark performing Sunday, only two shows are left to attend. Elephant Revival is scheduled for Aug. 25, and Byron Berline Band will wrap up the series on Sept. 8.
“This is the highlight of our summer,” Norman resident Nora House said about Summer Breeze.
House said she and her family love the series, all of the different music and the relaxed atmosphere, adding that they try to attend all of the concerts.
“You can tell by the amount of people here that people enjoy it,” Norman resident Harry O’Daniel said, sitting on a blanket with his wife, Jennifer and 17-month daughter, Darcie.
Darcie squirmed around in her pink tutu in between her parents, listening to the music, looking content.
“She loves the music,” Jennifer O’Daniel said.
She said the concert series is a good event to attend with the family and they try to attend almost every concert throughout the summer.
Other local residents also said they try to come to all of the free concerts.
“I come all the time,” resident Mark Dvorak said. “I like the free music and the people. The bands are all pretty good.”
Moore residents John and Vickie Kelley drive to Norman every Sunday to have a nice night out at the park. They particularly enjoy the concerts at Lions Park, Vickie said.
“We love it. We come every summer,” she said, adding that she and her husband love that the concerts are outdoors.
As Honeylark continued to play into the night, bodies swayed with the music, some tossed frisbees in an open area, and everyone seemed to have another fun family night in Norman.
