Summer just keeps getting better in midtown Omaha. The flowers are in full bloom, the grass has never been more green or lush, the warm summer nights are so inviting.
And, oh yes, there’s plenty to do.
It just feels good to be outside, to gather as one community. To be with friends and family.
And Midtown Crossing, once again, has all the right ingredients and is the idyllic spot for gatherings. There’s a hustle and bustle in midtown that feels so good again, so inviting.
No doubt, evenings just don’t get any better than Turner Park and Jazz on the Green. The parking could not be easier and more plentiful, and the scenery is the best Omaha has to offer. The Omaha Performing Arts crew along with the hosts, Midtown Crossing, have just figured it out – great music plus a scenic setting. The fact that there are numerous eclectic dining options in walking distance makes this picture-perfect evening even better. Whether it’s pizza to go, a juicy burger and fries or mouth-watering wings in a home-made sauce, the evening is sure to please. Having a grocery store, on-site, makes life easy. Just grab a favorite bottle of wine, chips and salsa, cheese and crackers and you and your music-loving friends have a party. This year’s musical line up is sure to please and includes such talent as Vincent Herring and The Celebration of Life Ensemble, Curley Taylor and Zydeco Trouble and Curtis Stigers.
