Claim your spot for Symphony Under the Stars

INDEPENDENT RECORD

Beginning this afternoon, members of the public can start claiming their spots on Carroll College’s Guadalupe Hill for Saturday’s free Symphony Under the Stars concert celebrating the music of Billy Joel and Elton John.

Early placement of blankets and lawn chairs will be allowed 3-5 p.m. Friday for anyone who makes a $5 donation to the Boy Scouts, who will be on site providing security. Everyone else can claim their spots beginning at 5 p.m. Pets, plastic tarps, paint, rocks and stakes are strictly prohibited on the lawn at all times. 

Concert-goers are encouraged to hold down their blankets with non-perishable or canned food items that will be donated to Helena Food Share. The event is the local food bank’s biggest food drive of the year and usually brings in more than 18,000 pounds of food per year, but event organizers hope to up that number to 22,000 pounds this year.
