Friday night at the Barriere Bandshell provides music for all ages

By Elli Kohnert

Friday night at the Barriere Bandshell is Music In The Park time for the Summer, and so it was on July 12.

The band on stage was Imagine from Clearwater, playing nostalgic pop / western music, and judging by the applause received they were a hit all-around.

Music In The Park attracts people of all ages. The young children attending don’t sit still very long, but they do have a great time keeping themselves occupied by playing games or enjoying the outdoors. Being located in Fadear Park it is an especially fitting spot for socializing. If you like dogs, you could also meet some friendly canines because dog owners bring their furry friends along for an evening out in the fresh air.

Imagine band member Marnie Peters, had her service dog ‘Valour’ at her side at all times. Peters says she suffers from the effects of an injury that may cause her to fall, and this is when Valour will get help for her if she tells him to do so. Watching Valour was amazing, he never stoped being fully aware of his owner, and was always ready to go into action instantly when needed.

The Friday event provided a pleasant summer evening of listening to enjoyable music and meeting both old and new friends. Many who attended said they will be sure to return for the next Music In The Park event.
