Perfect weather helped draw a big crowd to the event, a double bill with a children’s show by Lynn Lewis and Friends and the main performance by Fools on the Hill, a Beatles tribute band.

Friends of the Shelton Dog Park was offering face painting for $3 to raise money for the facility.

It was part of the 2013 Music Under the Stars free outdoor concert series, presented by the Shelton Parks and Recreation Department.
