Fountains at Roseville brings back free summer entertainment

A Roseville shopping center is launching an encore of its free summer concert series after a wildly popular debut last year.

More than 15,000 people attended the Fountains at Roseville's summer entertainment series in 2009, Fountains spokeswoman Heather Atherton said.

This year's series will again feature concerts on Saturday and Wednesday evenings, as well as street fairs, music and dancing on Friday nights.

The first of the series' weekend concerts begins Saturday with The Sun Kings, a Beatles tribute band. The Saturday night concerts are held from 8 to 10 p.m. every Saturday through early September.

Wednesday night concerts, held from 7 to 9 p.m. weekly, feature a wide range of music genres, from funk to country.

This summer, street fairs will be held from 6 to 10 p.m. every first Friday of the month (June 4, July 2, Aug. 6 and Sept. 3). The festivals include live music, a beer and wine garden, artisans, crafters and car clubs.

The remaining Friday nights will be "Flashback Friday" themed nights from 7 to 9 p.m. and feature music and dancing. Roseville Dance will provide dance exhibitions and lessons every third Friday of the month, she said.

Here are some rules of the road:

• Keep your comments civil. Don't insult one another or the subjects of our articles. If you think a comment violates our guidelines click the "report abuse" button to notify the moderators. Responding to the comment will only encourage bad behavior.

• Don't use profanities, vulgarities or hate speech. This is a general interest news site. Sometimes, there are children present. Don't say anything in a way you wouldn't want your own child to hear.

• Do not attack other users; focus your comments on issues, not individuals.

• Don't repeat the same comment over and over. We heard you the first time.

• Do not use the commenting system for advertising. That's spam and it isn't allowed.

• Don't use all capital letters. That's akin to yelling and not appreciated by the audience.
