Charlie Parr was the headliner for the first of five of Glensheen's Concerts on the Pier. Organizers say an hour and a half after the gates opened there were 1500 people.

Charlotte Montgomery opened for Charlie Parr. Some people chose to listen to the music on the shore, sitting in chairs or blankets while others enjoyed it from the water on boats or kayaks.

Bellisio's is providing a cash bar, but there are also five food trucks from: The Rambler, King of Creams, Yker Acres, Log Home Wood Fired Pizza, and El Oasis Del Norte. Love Creamery is also serving ice cream.

Cindy Senarighi, a tourist from White Bear Lake, says she likes coming to these types of events to escape the everyday world.

"The way everything is right now with social media, and I work from home, and all of that, it's really great to be able to come to community events. I love Glensheen, I'm a UMD grad. I mean, what better opportunity could it be? 

Concerts are going to be held every Wednesday until July 31. The lineup for the Concerts on the Pier is:

  • July 3: Charlie Parr - Opener: Charlotte Montgomery
  • July 10: Sarah Krueger - Opener: Jacob Mahon 
  • July 17: Big Wave Dave & The Ripples - Opener: "Special Guest" (not specified)
  • July 24: Black River Revue - Opener: Jerree Small
  • July 31: The 4ONTHEFLOOR - Opener: Rick McLean

Any concertgoers are encouraged to bike, boat, walk, or kayak to the concerts as parking is limited. They are also encouraged to bring a chair or blanket to sit on.

Gates open at 5:00 pm with the music starting at 6:00 pm and concluding at 8:00 pm.
