‘Concerts in the Park’ series extended through August 8
Yukon Parks and Recreation has extended Concerts in the Park with “Bark at the Park” night on Thursday, August 8, at Chisholm Trail Park Gazebo. Smilin’ Vic and the Soul Monkeys will play blues, soul, and Motown music from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
The special concert is a replay of the June 6 concert, which was cancelled due to severe weather.
It’s Dollar Hot Dog Night! Other concessions that night are chips, cold drinks and cookies. Proceeds from concessions offset the cost of the bands and keep the concerts free to the public.
Dog enthusiasts are welcome to bring their dogs out for special contests starting at 7:00 p.m. Registration starts at 6:30 p.m. Awards are given for best trick, costume, bark and others exciting endeavors.
