Norfolk's Music In The Park Draws Crowd for Final Summer Concert
NORFOLK- A Norfolk summer concert series finished another season Thursday evening.
The Music in the Park series brought in bands from Omaha and Lincoln to provide live music at Skyview Lake throughout the summer. Norfolk's Rotary Club started the concert series three years ago for people to enjoy a summer activity without spending a lot of money. Music In The Park's organizer Stan Christensen says he got the idea from Omaha's Jazz On The Green concert series.
Christensen: "I have been going to Jazz On The Green for 25 years and I see a lot of communities concerts in different cities that I go to. Everybody was having a great time and I thought we should have something like that."
Christensen says attendance has grown over the years, but admits there are probably some within the community that don't know about Music in the Park. He estimated three thousand people to have been at Thursday night's concert featuring 402 of Omaha.
