Music in the Park
The Cuyuna Lakes Chamber welcomes the community to enjoy live local music while
overlooking the beautiful shores of Serpent Lake at Crosby Memorial Park this summer. Music
in the Park continues the second and fourth Thursday from 5-8 p.m. in June, July, and August.

The second concert of the series is sponsored by the Brainerd Lakes Area Community
Foundation and Cuyuna Range Youth Center on Thursday, June 24 from 5-8 p.m. at Crosby
Memorial Park on Serpent Lake.
Attendees can learn how to safely paddle a kayak from 5 to 7 p.m. on Serpent Lake near
Crosby’s Memorial Park during the Cuyuna Lakes Chamber’s Music in the Park.
Each participant will be allowed to try kayaking at their own pace for about 15 minutes guided by
instructors. Topics to be covered will include safety tips, proper strokes, paddling techniques,
changing direction, and slowing down while practicing in the water.
At “Learn to Paddle”; kayaks, paddles and life jackets will be provided on a first-come, first-
serve basis. Life jackets will be required. Volunteers will try to fit them as best as possible but
those who have life jackets are asked to bring their own. Also, those planning to kayak should
wear closed-toe shoes for safety. Educational flyers will also be provided, and physicians and
emergency medical personnel will be on site.
The "Learn to Paddle" event is sponsored by Cuyuna Regional Medical Center (CRMC) and
Cuyuna Outfitters. For more information, visit www.cuyunamed.org.
Children may also compete in a limbo contest to win a prize from Mixed Company. Bring lawn
chairs and blankets, sit back, and enjoy the event. Crosby Memorial Park also offers RV and
tent campsites (reservations at www.cityofcrosby.com), boat access, picnic shelters, a large
playground, giant serpent statue, WWII tank, skate park, softball field and a basketball court.
Musicians Roy Liljenquist and the band 2003UB313 will provide live entertainment until 8 p.m.
Roy Liljenquist grew up around music in Minneapolis. His music has hints of gospel and is
heavily influenced by blues.
2003UB313 is a group of friends playing punk rock mixed with a whole lot of energy to deliver a
dynamic and engaging live show that is just plain fun.
The Cuyuna Lakes Chamber of Commerce holds Music in the Park on the second and fourth
