The Mayor’s Night Out concert series has been a staple of summer fun in the area since 2004. Concerts are described as “family friendly” events, and all scheduled acts appeal to many musical tastes. Several Mayor’s Night Out concert events featuring acts, such as South of the River Band, Gary Tolley and Forever Blessed, have already taken place this summer.
