Scarborough concert series continues on Thursdays
SCARBOROUGH — The Scarborough Community Chamber, in partnership with Scarborough Community Services, is sponsoring the annual free summer concert series in Memorial Park.
The series features performances in a range of musical genres on Thursday evenings at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, July 8, will feature Nashville and Scarborough's own Don Campbell Band playing country tunes.
July 15 brings a change in pace with the Bellamy Jazz Band. The following Thursday mixes things up again with "the ultimate disco party band," Motor Booty Affair. Sounds of the Awesome 80's Band takes the stage July 29, and the series concludes with the timeless sounds of the Tony Boffa Band.
Free parking is available at Scarborough High School along with free, handicapped-accessible shuttles to take people to and from the parking lot and the park. The rain location is Winslow Homer Theater in the high school.
"It's a great night to get out," Art Dillon, vice president of the Scarborough Community Chamber, said. "In Memorial Park you can have the kids go play ball while you listen to music, or you can go play ball yourself while you listen to music."
Concession stands open at 5:30 p.m. with all proceeds from the series going back into the community, Dillon said. There will also be a 50/50 raffle, with first place winning half of the raffle money, second place winning two passes for the Amtrak Downeaster, and third place winning two passes to Maine Indoor Karting.
During intermission there will be free t-shirts, Frisbees and flying monkeys – about which Dillon said "you'll just have to wait to find out until you get there."
