ParkFest concert series is a go

Tuesday, June 9, 2020

Kick off scheduled for June 15

Despite uncertainty due to COVID-19-related cancelations, the 2020 ParkFest concert series will kick off Tuesday, June 16 at 6:30 p.m.

The first concert of the season will feature Lincoln Street, a Greencastle-based band featuring Krystal Becker on vocals, Bill Hamm on bass, Veronica Pejril on keyboards and Rick Provine on drums.

The concert series, which is coordinated by the Greencastle Civic League, in partnership with Greencastle Parks and Recreation, is getting a bit of a late start for its 27th season and will look a little different than in years past.

“Concert goers are encouraged to wear masks and stay socially distant from each other while enjoying the concert,” said Megan Linneweber, president of the Greencastle Civic League. “We also ask anyone who is not feeling well or has symptoms please not attend. We want to keep everyone safe and healthy while also providing entertainment for our community.”

Greencastle Civic League Inc. was founded in 1984. Its mission is to improve life in Greencastle, primarily through beautification, clean-up projects, cultural development and the arts. Major projects include the construction of the Emerald Palace playground at Robe-Ann Park, the creation of the Bob York Splash Park and a number of murals downtown.

The group also facilitates ParkFest, the 4th of July Pancake Breakfast and two annual highway clean-ups of its sponsored portion of the Veterans Memorial Highway.

  • That's not a lot of time for the mowing to get caught up. Hope they can get it done in time.

    Plan to catch a few concerts this season.
