Clark Street Station Performs on Lagoon Concert Stage July 13

The Lagoon Summer Concert Series, one of Northern Colorado’s favorite family-friendly concert series, is in full swing on the west lawn of the Colorado State University Lory Student Center! Owned and produced by the Mantooth Company for the past 25 years, this popular summer tradition brings together friends and families on Wednesday nights from 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. through July 27.

There is a lot planned for this week’s concert on Wednesday, July 13. Taking the stage to energize the crowd will be Clark Street Station, a local classic rock band that plays an eclectic mix of music that is familiar and loved from different decades.

Gary Ozzello will return as emcee. Ozzello is a former Colorado State University Athletics Sports Information Director, now serving as Director of University Relations for Canvas Credit Union. He has the prestigious honor of being inducted into the 2021 Hall of Honor at Colorado State University.

This week’s concert will be made particularly memorable for one dad and his family as he is given keys to a car by Houska Automotive! Family owners, LJ, Jen, Dennis and Noreen Houska will present a 2010 Chevrolet Malibu to Mr. Cire Brown at 7:30 p.m. This is the seventh year Houska Automotive has donated a car to very deserving Project Self-Sufficiency recipient. Project Self-Sufficiency is a nonprofit that serves to provide education and career development to single parents empowering them to live an independent life.
