Music on the Mountain, Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park’s mountaintop concert series, continues this week on Saturday, May 31, when Night Plane takes the stage for an evening of acoustic rock.

The can-for-a-tram or bus rides begin at 4 p.m. The band plays from 6-10 p.m. This week’s concert is sponsored by the Lift FM, one of’s 11 radio stations in Colorado mountain resort communities.
