PORT HENRY - The Port Henry summer concert series will begin July 10 with a performance by Flashback.
"This is our 15th or 16th year at least," Jack Woods, Moriah Chamber of Commerce president, said. "The concerts are very well-attended. In fact, I think the crowd grows every year. People look forward to them."
The concerts are held Fridays at 6:30 p.m. at the town bandstand at Park Place throughout the summer. The shows are sponsored by the chamber and the Arts Council for the Northern Adirondacks.
People typically bring lawn chairs or sit on the grass around the bandstand, Woods noted.
"It's a nice family event," he said.
Other concerts in the summer series include:
- Loose Connection on July 17;
- Generation on July 24;
-Tractor on July 31;
- Impulse on Aug. 7;
- John BRooks on Aug. 14; and
- The Main Street Band on Aug. 21.
The Arts Council for the Northern Adirondacks, based in Westport, is a cultural organization whose primary goals are to encourage, develop, promote and sustain the cultural life of local and regional communities.
The Moriah Chamber of Commerce was formed to strengthen area businesses and promote the community. It annually sponsors several events, including Champ Day the first Saturday of August and the annual community Labor Day celebration.
