Back for another summer, the first of the popular Concert in the Park series, sponsored by the Oakdale Chamber of Commerce, kicks off on Friday, July 12. “Live Again” will be taking the stage and the concerts are hosted in Dorada Park; more affectionately, the “Wood Park” or “Children’s Play Park” and run from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Here is the full line-up of bands that will be playing and their dates are: July 12, Live Again; July 19, Ava Grace and the New Sound; July 26, Remedy; Aug. 2, Heidi Brunk Band; Aug. 9, Guy Dossi Band; Aug. 16, Oakdale Community Band; Aug. 23, Mark Macsenti and the Taillights and, wrapping up the series on Aug. 30, Barbara Findlay and Jim Ramont.
Desa Cammack, Events Coordinator at the Oakdale Chamber of Commerce, said that there are sponsorship options to help support the summer entertainment and include Idol, Groupie, Fan, or Spectator, which all have different perks. The money sponsored for these are usually “just enough to cover expenses” between the vendors and band, said officials.
“This year we have got a great line-up ... a lot of town favorites,” Cammack noted.
