(Wednesday, June 13, 2018) New Philadelphia, Ohio – A brand new concert series will debut this month at the boardwalk gazebo at Tuscora Park.

City Council President and Rotary member Sam Hitchcock envisioned this type of event when the boardwalk was being built. He noted that the boardwalk and gazebo was a project for the rotary’s 100th year anniversary last year.

“There’s a huge 34-foot-wide gazebo there and when it was being built I made sure there plenty of outlets there, a 20 amp outlet, because I could see entertainment in that gazebo.”

This pilot series will feature a handful of acts throughout the summer starting June 20th.

<p>“The first show will be Saxy Rob which will be on the 20th of this month. Saxy Rob is an amazing entertainer and that will be sponsored by Pipes Insurance.

Popular entertainer Randy Velez will perform at the second concert on July 18th followed by The Canal Fulton Community Band on August 1st and Daniels & Reinhart will close out the series on August 15th.

The RTY Concession stand will be open and residents are asked to bring their lawn chairs.

Each concert will be from 6pm to 8pm.
