Dawson Park Concert - 2008

Once again Dawson Park will host three concerts this summer in July (and August).    The gazebo, renovated in the the Spring of 2008, will be the stage for the live performances.  Last year three great acts graced the gazebo and this year’s lineup looks fantastic. Concerts begin at 6:30 PM and last about 2 hours.  Best of all, the concerts are free!
