April 22, 2013. The schedule for the Summer Concerts in the Park presented by Banner Elk Chamber and the Town of Banner Elk has been released.
Always a fun time, the free concerts begin on June 20 with the King Bees and ends on August 29 with the Whip Daddys. Concerts are held each Thursday at 6:30 p.m. at the Tate-Evans Park behind Bank of America in downtown Banner Elk.
A press release added, “There will be raffle tickets sold for wonderful prizes and a cash drawing. Also, there will be several food vendors from which to choose or you can bring your own. Come unwind with us, “shake a leg” on the dance floor, listen to great music and socialize with wonderful people. Friendly well-behaved dogs are permitted if they are on a leash.”
Each weekly concert has a different sponsor. Those include Morningstar Mini-Storage, Eagle Ridge Builders, The Action Group, Dr. Carol Schaffer, Lees-McRae College (twice), Pet Spa, Banner Elk United Methodist Church, Subway, Appalachian Brian Estates and Frank and Mary Watts.
