Bring your own lawn chairs for the concerts. In case of inclement weather the concert will move indoors to the Baptist Church next door. The concerts, beginning at 6:30 p.m. will run approximately 75 minutes with a 10 minute intermission. Refreshments will be available at the Baptist Church's hot dog/hamburger stand before the concerts begin. During the concerts and intermission various non-profit groups will sell refreshments.
