Two free, family-friendly concert series will be presented at Dickinson Memorial Park band shell this summer.

The easiest access to that area of the town park is off Deep Brook Road, just west of the skate park.

Guests will need to provide their own seating for any show. Picnics are welcome, but guests will be expected to carry out their own trash.

Thursday Evening Family-Friendly Concerts began June 24 with a return by Keltic Kick. The band performed on opening night of the Parks & Recreation Spring Carnival at Fairfield Hills. Subsequent performances, as mentioned earlier, will all be at Dickinson Park.

The all-ages Thursday series will continue weekly with Goldrush on July 1; Survivors Swing Band, July 8; the Kathy Thompson Band, July 15; Tales of Joy, July 22; Jake Kulak & The LowDown, July 29; and Head Over Heels, August 5.

Those concerts will run from 6:30 to 8 pm. They are being sponsored by Newtown Parks & Recreation and Claris Construction.

The children’s series of concerts, Tuneful Tuesdays, will open on June 29 with “Principal” Al deCant and Jill Kubeck.

That series, which is co-sponsored by C.H. Booth Library, Claris Construction, and Newtown Parks & Recreation, will continue with Steve Elci & Friends, July 6; T-Bone (Tom Stankus), July 13; Francine Wheeler, July 20; Mr Gym, July 27; and Vanessa Trien & The Jumping Monkeys, August 3.

In the event of rain, Tuneful Tuesday performances will move to the Edmond Town Hall Theatre, 45 Main Street. Parents are strongly encouraged to register for these shows to ensure that seating is available should a performance be moved indoors.
