Folk and rock music will lend flavour to the summer heat with Music in the Park.
The grassroots concert series is a free event for families and friends held at Pothole Park at 5 p.m. every Thursday until the end of August.
Entertainers Emily Rawbon, Ian Wilson and James Reimer performed on Thursday, July 2nd to mark the start of the summer Music in the Park concert series.
“It was hot, seriously hot. But that didn’t stop us from doing what we do best,” said Ms. Rawbon, vocalist. “It was a lot of fun playing in the sun and the crowd appeared to be enjoying themselves. A great start to the summer music scene.”
The Chisel Peak Blues Band set the pace for homegrown and import musicians who will follow up their act at Music in the Park this season.
“There’s a variety of local and out of town bands throughout all of July and August,” said Theresa Wood, event organizer. “It runs between 5 and 8 p.m. every Thursday.”
There are nine bands who have been booked, and Ms. Wood is still searching for a few more shows to fill up the rest of the season.
In addition, there will be a string of market vendors who are setting up shop at the July 9th show. It will continue to be home to musicians, artisans and spectators alike.
“We did it last year in Cenotaph Park but we moved to Pothole Park because of the grassy, gracious and natural fit,” said Ms. Wood.
