Justin Ploof and the Throwbacks are the second part of the series scheduled Aug. 16.

In addition to the concerts, Rockin’ Robbins will also feature regional food trucks and concessions, a beer/wine tent, crafters/artisans, free bus/shuttle service, a kids’ entertainment area and a free bike corral.

The Willmar Rotary Club and the Willmar Lakes Rotary Club have teamed up to host the concerts as a joint Community Service Project. They are mirroring the efforts of the St. Cloud Rotary Club, whose wildly popular “Summertime by George” concert series has raised over $300,000 for the redevelopment of Eastman Park on Lake George.
