You can hear the sounds of a wide variety of music this summer in Grafton. The annual Music in the Park series opens this evening and runs every Thursday through August 9. Rock, folk, country, bluegrass, jazz and blues will be featured in the series that is free to attend and takes place at Grove Memorial Park at Main and Market Streets starting at 7pm.
The Grafton Chamber of Commerce organizes the concerts and coordinator Carla Newton says there's no better place to hang out than in Grafton:
Tonight, it's the local band the Five and Dimers. In addition to music, a 50-50 drawing will be held each night to support the band program at Jersey Community High School, and a canned food drive will also be held each week for the Grafton Food Pantry.
