August 2 Featuring New Souls (Funk/R&B/90s Hip Hop)

The Urbana Park District loves our neighbors so much, we bring a great concert to 11 different neighborhoods each summer. Live, local music is the hallmark of these events. Each park features a different local band, all playing the very best music from blues to 80s hits to jazz and bluegrass. Bring your lawn chair or even a picnic dinner and spend the evening with us.

Each Neighborhood Night features:

  • The very best local musicians
  • Free popcorn and lemonade
  • Fun activities
  • Meet City of Urbana officials and talk to them about your neighborhood

AFTER THE CONCERT:

Join the Urbana Park District for a special Neighborhood Nights movie! Directly following the Neighborhood Nights concert by 90s Hip-Hop & Neo Soul band New Souls, we are excited to have a FREE showing of 2016’s  animated “The Wild Life”. We’ll have free popcorn and lemonade and the big blow-up movie screen for your summer enjoyment. In this rollicking adventure, a daring parrot recounts how Robinson Crusoe came to be stranded on a tropical island. The movie is 90 minutes long.
