Sunshine, snow cones and great music were plentiful at the first concert of the Broomfield Summer Concert Series on Wednesday night.

The field west of the Broomfield Library was full of families, community members and all their furry friends to enjoy the music of Selasee and the Fafa Family.

The reggae band, which has shared the stage with reggae legends such as Steel Pulse, The Wailers, Third World, The Mighty Diamonds, Don Carlos, Barrington Levy, King Yellowman and The Melodians, had everyone up, dancing and enjoying the warm summer weather.

Three food trucks were set up at the concert, including two savory options serving Mexican food and pizza, and a Kona Ice stand for a sweet choice.

The concert series is put on by Creative Broomfield, in partnership with other city and county departments.

Megan Gilby, arts and history manager for the Library, Arts and History Department, said concert-goers can expect a similar lineup of vendors for each concert. Gilby said there will be a rotating variety of two savory and one sweet options at each event.

Gilby said there are multiple new things to expect at this year’s family-friendly concert series.

“We’ve got plenty of new things happening this year,” Gilby said. “We are really interested in moving through the community to bring music to different neighborhoods, so we will have two new locations this year. If it works out well we will be planning to continue this and expand it more in the coming years.”

The two new locations include The New Orleans Suspects at North Midway Park and AJ Lee and Blue Summit at Repoint Ridge Park in Arista.

Creative Broomfield is partnering the the Broomfield Library to host one concert specifically for families inside the Broomfield Auditorium on Monday at 10 a.m.

“We are excited to have Jessica Fichot coming for a special family-friendly show this year,” Gilby said. “We also have another group we are really excited to have, The Secret Agency, a Grammy-winning hip hop group who are great for all ages.”

Gilby said the team focused on bringing a variety of genres and events for this year’s series, including a theater production of “Amelia’s Big Idea” by the Butterfly Effect Theater Company.
