A Danville summertime tradition returns for the 31st year this weekend when the first Music in the Park concert of the season comes to Oak Hill Park on Saturday evening.
The annual summer series, organized by the town of Danville, features four free concerts overall at two town parks in July and August.
Town officials recommend residents bring blankets, lawn chairs and picnics to the concerts, which take place every other Saturday evening through Aug. 20. All four concerts are set to run from 6-8 p.m.
