(ATLANTIC) This Thursday marks the first Third Thursday Summer Concert Series in Atlantic from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the City Park.
Atlantic Area Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Megan Roberts discusses this summer’s entertainment, “Dirt Road Acoustic Rehab is going to be our country and blues band that is going to play on June 21st. In July we’re going to feature Traveling Light which is a little bit more rock and roll, they’re a local group that folks have probably heard of, and so we’re excited to have them at our Third Thursday. And then in August we’re going to feature kind of a back to school theme and so we have a hip hop dubstep DJ that’s going to be playing, as well as a local high school band and some other entertainment lined up for that night.”
Roberts said this year they are adding “Produce in the Park”.
“We are partnering with the Cass County Food Policy Council,” explained Roberts. “They have decided that the more opportunities there are for local food folks to be able to promote themselves and sell their goods, the better. So, this Third Thursday is just a great atmosphere, you’ve got the families there, you’ve got the entertainment, what better than some fresh produce to go along with it.”
The entertainment portion of the Summer Concert Series is free. Audience members will need to bring lawn chairs or picnic blankets to best enjoy the experience. Ready-to-eat meals will also be available through local vendors.
