UPDATING FOR 2016. Check back soon.
If you're a kid, one of the special rites of summer is staying up well past your bed time. Just last week, I experienced one of those warm, waning nights from the other side -- where I didn't mind my kids' precious, yet exhausting, presence late into the evening because what was going on was keeping them blissfully entertained.
Freedom-filled nights like that do everyone a bit of good, so we've compiled a list of spots where you can spend the rest of your summer evenings soaking up those last rays of sunshine. Pack some snacks and a blanket ... and enjoy. Most of these performances are FREE!
