Lunch break concerts return to Maple Ridge

The Lunchtime Concert Series runs every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday in August.

Lunch break will get even better in August with free concerts coming to Maple Ridge three times a week.

The Lunchtime Concert Series is returning to Memorial Peace Park every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday in August from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.

Local performers will take the stage to play a variety of genres throughout August.

The Downtown Maple Ridge Business Improvement Association is hosting the series to draw people to downtown Maple Ridge in the summer, and to attract locals to enjoy their lunch and local talent during the lunch hour.

This year’s lineup includes musicians Nigel Tucker, Sydney & Marcus, Camryn Skeeles, Jennifer Xu, Bob Cockroft and more.
