When I was growing up, a nice summer Saturday evening held great promise for me and my brothers.  If we were lucky, Mom and Dad might be taking us for our big outing to the Drive-in to see the latest Disney or John Wayne movie.  It was always an adventure.  First you had to find a speaker that worked which meant you got to ride up and down the rows until Dad found a suitable spot at just the right angle.  Then the trip to the Concession Stand - holding your snacks and trying to find your car again was always a challenge. It was great fun - just something about being in your PJs in the back seat in the dark with a speaker squawking in the window and the huge movie screen looming up ahead. 

We don't have a drive-in handy in Kent County, but you can enjoy sitting outside for an evening concert in Fountain Park.  Seating is limited so you may want to bring along a chair.  The remainder of the Chestertown Music in the Park Concert series is scheduled for 7:00 - 8:30 on the following Saturdays:  July 16, 30, August 13, 27; September 10, 24.  Enjoy!  VB
