Fountains at Roseville is launching a summer entertainment series, with the first of the free events commencing tonight.
Shoppers and music lovers can enjoy free concerts and other entertainment Wednesday, Friday and Saturday nights until Sept. 30.
The series is modeled after a "tremendously" successful Saturday night concert series held at the shopping center last summer, Heather Atherton, a spokeswoman for the Fountains, said in an e-mail.
The Wednesday night concerts will feature bands, trios and duos from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday night entertainment includes a street fair, farmers market, strolling performers, sidewalk sales and car show from 6 to 9 p.m. Main street will be open only to pedestrian traffic.
Saturday night concerts begin at 7 p.m. and are located on the main stage.
Concert-goers are asked to bring folding chairs or blankets to enjoy the entertainment, she said.
Fountains also is hosting a kids club complete with entertainment, crafts and activities for children every second Saturday of the month throughout 2009. The first children's event will be held June 13 and will have a Father's Day theme.
