Commerce Township residents will have their last chance to enjoy some free live music this summer at the final of three summer concerts being held this Friday, Aug. 12, at Dodge Park No. 5.
This summer marks the first time Commerce Township has held these concerts, and so far they have been successful.
“It’s been wonderful,” said Parks and Recreation Director Emily England. “We have received nothing but good comments. Attendance grew from the first to the second (concert), and everybody seems to have a good time when they’re there.”
This month’s concert will feature country soloist JT Williams as the opening act for Mainstreet Soul, a 10-piece horn band playing “the best of rock, pop, and soul.”
The opening act is set to start at 6:30 p.m. with the main act to follow at 7 p.m. Children’s activities will start at 6 p.m. and include face painting, a magician, and the Home Depot Kids’ Workshop, which, according to England, has been popular.
Meanwhile, Hungry Howie’s Pizza, Carvel Ice Cream, and Grand Hot Dogs will be returning to sell a variety of refreshments during the concert.
The concert will be held on the soccer fields at Dodge Park No. 5. Attendees can enter the park at the south entrance located on South Commerce Road between Commerce and Oakley Park roads.
