The eighth annual Jazz on the Lawn summer concert series kicks off this Sunday, Aug. 4, with a performance by the Latin jazz and salsa group Coganas.

Family and friends of all ages can bring a picnic, blanket and beach chairs each Sunday in August to Stewart Street Park where they can enjoy free jazz and a sampling of treats from one of the rotating dessert vendors. Sweet Lucies will be offering 100 percent organic ice cream and sorbets at the Coganas performance.

Each concert runs from 5 p.m.-7 p.m. with free parking available after 3:30 p.m. in the Agensys lot at 1800 Stewart St.
