Good news this week from the Fayetteville Parks and Recreation Division is that the Summer Concerts in the Park Series has survived. This fun outdoor event, now in its 12th year, is one of the things that makes Fayetteville a special place to live.
The five Thursday concerts in Gulley Park this season include Ultra Suede (May 22), Chase Missy (June 5), Nace Brothers (June 19), Big Smith (July 3), Benjamin del Shreve with Tiffany Christopher (July 24), and Oreo Blue (August 7). All concerts begin at 7 p.m., and they are free. Bring the family or snake a date, and be sure to bring a blanket.
Thanks to the local businesses that stepped up to help sponsor the concerts this year, including Longer Investments, Koenig Family Works, Holiday Inn Express, Insty-Prints, Magic 107.9, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, KFSM Channel 5, and the Northwest Arkansas Times.
