I felt transported in time as I sat and looked at the spires of the bandshell which has been recently restored. When I was a kid we could hear the bands playing form my grandmother’s sun porch. What a treat to return.

Stop here to enjoy some of the local talent while visiting the lakes. There is a park nearby that will allow you to lay back and relax while enjoying some music in this richly cultured city!

This is a great place to relax and take in great music every day of the summer. Grab a bite to eat, get some ice cream and just enjoy. Go online to see who's playing, and especially go when the Belfast Cowboys play. While they...More

This is lovely venue for outdoor summer concerts; the lake itself is a pleasant walk (about 2.75 miles around). Be aware that, if you plug in LHBS on your iPhone using Maps, you will be directed to a parking lot that is almost a mile...More

We love coming to the bandshell for summer concerts. The pops concerts, the Minnesota orchestra, the sinfonia, sounds of Simon - it's all great. We are disappointed Gilbert and Sullivan won't be performed this year.
