Free summer concert series continues
Mostly Music in the Park, the free series of concerts stretching into August, continues this week with children's music by Lois LaFond & the Rockadiles on Thursday.

This year, more food service has been added for concert-goers. New is the Snack Shack, which sells gourmet hot dogs, pizza, pop, water and other snacks. Ice cream will continue to be sold.
