Looking for a unique and fun way to celebrate Mother’s Day this year? How about taking Mom to a Mother’s Day Concert in the Park? Presented by the North Idaho College Music Department, this free concert will take place at the City Park Bandshell on Sunday, May 13, from 2 to 4pm.

North Idaho College has hosted the Mother’s Day Concert in the Park for more than 25 years with entertainment provided by North Idaho College Wind Symphony and Chamber singers. According to communications and marketing director for North Idaho College, Stacy Hudson, the concert is one of the most popular offerings of the year through the North Idaho College Music Department. “Many families continue to attend the concert year after year, and it has become a great tradition for them and the mothers in their lives,” she said.

While some come specifically for the concert, many visiting the park are also drawn in by the music. Food and beverages are not sold at the park, but many families pack a picnic or bring food with them.

And if you are worried that rain will ruin your plans to attend the concert, it will be moved indoors at North Idaho College’s Boswell Hall Schuler Performing Arts Center in the case of inclement weather; however, Hudson advises that no food or beverages are allowed in the facility.

Whether you’ve been attending this special event for many years or looking for something new to do to treat your mom to a special day, be sure to head down to City Park and give mom the best gift of all—time spent together.

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms!
