Flood’s Hill in South Orange is the place to be each Wednesday evening all summer long.

Beginning in June, enjoy arts and crafts in a scenic park setting. As the evenings get longer Taste the Music takes center stage, complete with free concerts, food trucks, arts activities and games for the kids. In July, comes the popular Moonlit Movies; bring your blanket and your honey and enjoy the show.

All in all, its three full months of free arts programming for all to enjoy. Jointly produced by South Orange Recreation and Cultural Affairs and the South Orange Performing Arts Center — and sponsored by Maplecrest Ford Lincoln.
