Summer Lunch Concert Series Begins in Love Park
Fairmount Park executive director Mark Focht says the entertainment series gives Philadelphians a taste of summer:
"We have office workers, we also have tourists, we have residents that come out and sit in the park on the beautiful days like today, to have their lunch and enjoy an outdoor setting. And five years ago we started providing music, all types of music."
Focht says that Philadelphia goes "green" in July and August with eco-friendly fashion shows:
"We're bringing collections from five different continents, from designers -- particularly small designers -- who produce their collections by following environmentally friendly principles and also by committing themselves to fair trade."
The "Summer in Love" series runs Mondays through Fridays, from 12 noon to 2pm.
