PASO ROBLES — Molly Ringwald Project, a central coast band performing ’80’s pop and rock classics, will kick-off the summer Concerts in the Park season on Thursday, June 15 at 6 p.m. in City Park (Spring Street and 12th Street) in Paso Robles. The five-piece band comprised of a group of talented musicians are local favorites known for their high energy, danceable show. The Molly Ringwald Project concert is sponsored by Firestone Walker Brewing Company and First 5 San Luis Obispo County.

Each summer, the Paso Robles REC Foundation and the City of Paso Robles collaborate to host a free concert series on Thursday evenings in the City Park gazebo. Hundreds of locals along with savvy visitors flock to the park for great music, food, drink and dancing in a charming setting. Concerts in the Park will continue weekly on Thursday nights June 15 through August 24 (except for Thursdays, July 6 and 27). 

“Our concert series has become a favorite summer tradition among locals and visitors alike,” commented Lynda Plescia, Manager of Recreation Services for the City of Paso Robles. “We are so excited for the fantastic and diverse musical lineup that we have planned this season. There’s no doubt that City Park is the place to be on Thursday evenings this summer!”
