In addition to the Mathews Park concerts — looking forward to those! — there will be free concerts on the Green hosted by the First Taxing District at 7 PM on Saturday, August 14 and Saturday, August 21.
The July concert that had a weather cancellation may be rescheduled, and/or another band may play on the Green before the summer is over.
