SHELTON - One local group is continuing to bring the focus on the city’s downtown.

Celebrate Shelton is holding its Downtown Sounds: Fall Edition concert series Oct. 9 at Veterans Memorial Park. Gates open at 12:30 p.m., with musical performances from The Alpaca Gnomes, Tash Neal of The London Souls, and Lee-Ann Lovelace and Tracy Jo starting at 1 p.m. The rain date is Oct. 10.

More than 1,000 people attended each Friday during the three-week Downtown Sounds concert series held this past summer.

“How good does it feel to be together again? We were thrilled to be able to gather, enjoy live music and we sincerely appreciate the support from our community,” Nicole Heriot-Mikula, Celebrate Shelton co-founder, said.

“Because of the summer concert series popularity and our desire to continue to make our downtown a destination for families, we wanted to plan a fall edition concert right away,” fellow Celebrate Shelton co-founder Jimmy Tickey added.

Celebrate Shelton co-founder Michael Skrtic said the event will also feature local food trucks, a beer garden sponsored by New Belgium Brewing Company, handmade artisan vendors and children’s activities.

Featured food trucks will be Szabo's Seafood, Liquid Lunch, The Melting Truck, The Cinnabomb Mini Donut Factory, and Jim's Ice Cream Truck.

The concerts are free. There is a suggested donation of $10 to sustain the series efforts in the community. Sponsors are welcome to join the series by becoming in touch at the email address for the event at celebrateshelton@gmail.com.
