Summer Sounds at Skansie to Rock Gig Harbor

The City of Gig Harbor, along with its sponsors CenturyLink and St. Anthony Hospital once again present Summer Sounds at Skansie concert series beginning Tuesday June 28th with the Perry Acker Band.


In an effort to keep concert attendees safe and happy in the historic waterfront town of Gig Harbor, organizers are working on several changes to the event.  Concert attendees will see the same great quality music every Tuesday night at 6:30 p.m. from June 28th – August 23rd (see line up below), but will also see increased police and traffic control including signage to encourage drivers not attending the concerts to avoid downtown.  Additional changes include increased sani-kans, increased and more visible garbage and recycling areas, and a new layout of the park that will require aisles to be kept open for safer access throughout the park.  Additional signage is also being prepared to mark “no parking” areas near the park.


The July 19th concert featuring The Beatniks will be the only concert where Gig Harbor Police will close the road in front of Skansie Brothers Park.


Concerts take place rain or shine and concert attendees are encouraged to plan for the weather, bring low chairs or blankets and come early for good seats.  Saving seats is permitted as long as the aisles are kept clear.  No ropes or ties of any kind around seating area will be allowed.  No canopies or large umbrellas are allowed during the concerts.  Small rain umbrellas are acceptable, but please be courteous to those around you. Gig Harbor parks are all no smoking.
