Continuing their tradition of offering free entertainment in the summer months, the Town of Ocean View will host a Concert in the Park this Friday featuring the Over Time Band.
The concert will be held on June 14 from 6 to 8 p.m. in John West Park. Those attending are being encouraged to bring their lawn chairs and enjoy classic rock and popular contemporary tunes.
“They always draw a huge crowd,” said Donna Schwartz, Ocean View town clerk.
Schwartz said Boy Scout Troop 281 is going to be in attendance, selling hot dogs, sodas and water to those who want a snack. Rita’s Water Ice will also be available for purchase.
People may also pack their own picnic and take advantage of the pavilion at the park or find a nice spot on the grass.
If it rains, however, the Town will reschedule the performance for a future date.
The Town has put a focus on its Concerts in the Park this summer, and more entertainment is headed to Ocean View. Other Concerts in the Park are scheduled for Friday, July 28, featuring Junior Wilson & Chatty; Saturday, Aug. 12, featuring the Delmarvalous Dolls (an Andrews Sisters tribute band); and Friday, Aug. 25, featuring The Funsters. All are scheduled to run from 6 to 8 p.m.
Schwartz said the concerts have been well-attended in the past, and the Town hopes the community will continue attending and enjoying the array of music.
“I think that the Town gives back, in a sense, to the residents,” said Schwartz, “Of course, you don’t have to live in town to enjoy it.”
Schwartz said the concerts are a great community event that all should try to take advantage of.
“We hope for good weather, No. 1. We hope everybody comes, has a good time and enjoys themselves.”
