After a one-year hiatus in Norway, and a late start in Iron Mountain in 2020, live outdoor music on Thursdays will return this summer.

Both free summer concert series — the daytime Out to Lunch in downtown Iron Mountain and the evening Music in the Park in downtown Norway — are set to start June 10.

Out to Lunch will be 11:45 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. Thursdays on the Downtown Development Authority stage in Magee Johnson Park, on Hughitt and Iron Mountain streets. Music in the Park will be 7 to 8:30 p.m. Thursdays in the band shell on Main Street.

Crossroads Church on Odill Drive will host the Music in the Park concerts in the event of inclement weather. Out to Lunch concerts in the past have been moved to the Braumart Theatre when rain threatened, with the shift posted on Facebook, but it was unclear whether that would be done this year.

Out to Lunch and Music in the Park will feature three “doubleheader” events June 10, July 8 and Aug. 12, when the same group will perform in both community events.
