LANCASTER – On Thursday, May 31, the City of Lancaster and Sierra Toyota Scion will kick off the All American Summer Concert Series. The free concerts will take place throughout the summer, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., every other Thursday, coinciding with The BLVD Farmers’ Market.
“With the Farmers’ Market going on, the bands playing, people strolling, it’s a great place to come out and have fun with your family and enjoy yourself,” said Jim Hawse, President of Sierra Toyota Scion of Lancaster.
“People have been drawn to downtown Lancaster for decades,” said Lancaster Mayor R. Rex Parris. “Today, the unique boutiques, shops, and restaurants along The BLVD continue to make our downtown area a natural gathering spot. On Thursdays, the City gives people yet another reason to come visit, as patrons spend a warm summer night enjoying great music, shopping at the weekly Farmers Market, and feasting on our many downtown delights.”
Next Thursday, Raihanna Estrada will perform country favorites on the BeX Bandstand stage beginning at 6 p.m. Attendees are encouraged to bring lawn chairs so they can kick back while enjoying the music.
Shoes to Fill will perform on June 14, playing everything from Sinatra to Santana. The Beach Boys tribute band Woodie and the Longboards will perform on June 28. Subsequent performers will be announced in the coming weeks.
“Last year’s concert series was a huge success, and we’re delighted to support such a well-received community event again in 2012,” said Hawse.
