   DUVALL­What could be more idyllic than a warm summer evening by the river with food, family, friends and free entertainment? Life just doesn't get much better than this.
   During July and August, the Duvall Arts Commission,with sponsorships from the King County Arts Commission and local home-builder, Belmark Industries, presents Arts Onstage in the Park, an expansion of its popular performing arts series, in Duvall's scenic McCormick Park. With music from around the world and a production of Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night," these Wednesday evening concerts are the perfect place to relax and enjoy a picnic dinner.
   All performances begin at 6:30 p.m. McCormick Park is located at Main St. (Hwy. 203) and NE Stephens St. in Duvall. There is plenty of free public parking at the Metro Park and Ride just north of the park. Bring a blanket or a lawn chair and come early to stake out a prime spot. In case of inclement weather, the concerts will be moved to the Cedarcrest Performing Arts Center at 29000 NE 150th St. in Duvall.
