The parks district presents its annual Concert in the Park series from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Thursday evenings, July 19 through Aug. 9 at Community Park located at 5495 Maxwelton Road.

Grab dinner from the concession stand or pack the cooler, bring a blanket or folding chair, invite family or friends and join the community for this free concert series.

The musical line-up for the summer concert series will kick off July 19 with Locals Night, featuring Sophia Duccini with her indie folk style along with seasoned musician Quinn Fitzpatrick on solo guitar.
