The Santee Summer Concert Series that the series began as hundreds of music lovers flocked to listen to the Cat-illacs perform at the series kicked off on June 18.

Couples toting rolling coolers, lawn chairs, umbrellas, blankets and kids, kids, and more kids piled into Town Center Community Park East starting at 6:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m..

Bree Humphrey, with the City of Santee, highlighted some of the night’s attractions that  included a vintage rock & roll car show, food trucks, a rock & roll hair tent, and music.

Humphrey said some of the new entertainment this year would bring in Springsteen Experience, Whitney Shay & the Robin Henkel Band, the Ultimate Stones, and Slower.

From humble beginnings 32 years ago, the series has grown in popularity to the point where four major areas to park are needed. The nearby Sportsplex and Town Center Community Park West can be used for parking in addition to the parking next to the park and over flow field lot.

Humphrey said events like this make the “community feel like, well a community.”

The series is also a collaboration of businesses and other contributors that sponsor or assist in bringing these Thursday night town parties to life.

The City of Santee is fully behind these events and not only has the entertainment and food nailed down but also the smaller details like a bucket holding cans of bug spray to use if necessary.

Most of the food trucks take debit/credit cards but the City also provides ATM machines if necessary for the events that need it according to Humphrey.
