An addition to the Arlington Park promotional calendar for the 2009 season is the Miller Lite Saturday Taste of Summer which runs from May 23, the Saturday before Memorial Day, through Sept. 5, the Saturday before Labor Day.  The Miller Lite Saturday Taste of Summer features live music by popular local bands plus delicious food and beverage specials.  First race and first song each week is at 1 p.m. (12:15 p.m. on June 6, July 11 and Aug. 8).

In addition to live music, the Saturday Taste of Summer will feature Baggo and other interactive games plus guests will be able to have the pictures taken by an on-track photographer who will make the photos available for them to download at no charge.

Throughout the season, local radio personalities will make appearances at the Saturday Taste of Summer including a WDRV-FM (The Drive) sponsored "Arlington Idol" competition on June 6 and a "Gamble with Guy" Baggo contest featuring Guy Bauer of the Jonathan Brandmeier show on WLUP-FM (The Loop) on July 18.

Music from a wide range of genres including classic rock, Motown, New Orleans soul and Latin-flavored rock will be presented during the course of the summer.
