Over the past several months, I have been working with Nicole Heriot-Mikula and Michael Skrtic on Celebrate Shelton's Downtown Sounds Summer Concert Series. These free family-friendly concerts held in July and August included live music, food trucks and a beer garden, handmade artisan vendors and activities for children.
Each night had overflowing crowds as families arrived excited for live music and an enjoyable summer evening on the Veteran’s Memorial River Walk. Seeing families sing along with the music or children dance with their hula-hoops was what we had hoped for when we began planning these concerts months ago. I want to thank all those who attended our first summer concert series and celebrated Shelton with us!
