Best Free Entertainment Option

Sharing entertainment with each other is a gift that keeps on giving, especially when that entertainment is free. Dozens of diverse local bands and artists take the stage during Volume One’s Sounds Like Summer Concert Series in Phoenix Park, showcasing the musical talent in the Chippewa Valley. (The 2020 season was lost to COVID-19, but keep your fingers crossed for 2021.) When the guitars and amps have cooled down, Irvine Park in Chippewa Falls and the Sculpture Tour Eau Claire offer free entertainment opportunities that Chippewa Vallians can enjoy year round. –Parker Reed
