CLARKS SUMMIT — The next installment of the Lakeside Wednesday Concert Series will bring the tunes of classic rock to Hillside Park with a show by Double Cross.
The Abington Area Joint Recreation Board event will be held rain or shine, from 6 p.m. to dusk on Wednesday, Aug. 5. It is the seventh in this year’s series and will be followed by Lightweight and Senator John Blake Duo on Aug. 12, Q Ball and AM Radio on Aug. 19 and Tim McGurl and Crimson Tears on Aug. 26.
Double Cross band members include Fran Walsh on drums, Ron Morgan on guitar and Fran Festa on bass.
Admission to all series concerts is free, but donations are accepted to help cover costs and continue the series in future years. Each week there is also a collection of non-perishable food items for the Dalton Food Pantry.
The Overlook Estate Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation and appreciation of the natural world, is the ivory sponsor for the series. The Aug. 5 event is also sponsored by State Representative Marty Flynn and State Representative Sid Michaels Kavulich.
Food is offered for sale during the concert series by the Abington Lions Club and the Waverly Masons. Parking is limited and the AAJRB encourages concert-goers to consider parking in the upper lots and taking advantage of the walking trails leading down to the pavilion. A limited number of chairs are available and attendees may also bring their own chairs or blankets.
