|Midsummer Night Quilt Block|
A wonderful part of summer here is Concerts in the Park. People of all ages bring chairs or blankets to sit on for the Wednesday evening concerts. Families bring picnics or enjoy the hamburgers and hot dogs available for sale. Local merchants provide homemade cookies, two for $1. Wisdom Tea House sells their delicious gelato. High school Key Club members walk around collecting trash. The hat is passed for the band. Over the years, money has been raised to build a bandstand as well as bathrooms.
Young boys toss a football or kick a soccer ball.
Children swing and play on the nearby playground.
Tiny children run around and dance to the music.
The park is located right by the train tracks,
so you can count on a train or two to pass by during the concert.
Many of the bands play a "train" song when one passes by.
And the sunset puts on its own show.
