Many of the events are free, with programming that will please residents young and old.

Freeholder Ed McDonnell said this year the county is offering events and programs that will engage the overall community. This year, residents can enjoy the free Twilight Concerts in Cooper River Park later in the summer with Beatlemania Now, the Duprees and many other acts.

In addition, the public can sample Opera in the Park or the Sunset Jazz Series in Wiggins Waterfront Park along the Delaware River.

Sing along with Peter Yarrow at Haddon Lake Park’s Sundown Music Series or have family fun with a One Man Circus in Lindenwold Park or watch “The Lorax” at The Starlight Movie Series.

The biggest concert of the summer season is the three-day event at Wiggins Waterfront Park and the Susquehanna Bank Center as WXPN presents the Exponential Music Festival.

This year’s show will feature acts like Bob Dylan, Wilco, the Lunineers and My Morning Jacket. The festivities get started on July 26 and run until July 28.

This Fourth of July holiday, celebrate America along the Camden Waterfront with a free concert and spectacular fireworks display.

Continuing the tradition of the one river, two cities event, the Camden waterfront will be working in partnership with Penn’s Landing to put on one of the largest fireworks displays in the region.

These new amenities make Camden County a park system everyone can enjoy regardless of your disabilities.

More highlights of this year’s schedule include Regattas on the Cooper River and the “No Frills, Just Thrills” summer race series.

Head to the river for the US Rowing Club Nationals on July 9–14, the Frostbite Regatta on Nov. 9 and the Braxton Regatta on Nov. 10.

Lace up your running shoes for a great run. Join us for 1 Mile Run & 1 or 2 Loops on July 9 at 6:30 pm, 1 Loop Prediction Race on July 23 at 6:30 pm, Staggered Start Race on Aug. 6 at 7 pm and 1, 2 or 3 Loops on August 20 at 6:30 pm.
