Waynesboro Kicks Off Groovin' at the Greenway Concert Series
Waynesboro is kicking off a free summer concert series Wednesday. The weekly Wednesday night event – called Groovin' at the Greenway - will showcase Shenandoah Valley talent and spotlight the city's newest park.
Wednesday's show is the first in a three-week series. Performers will set up under the Dominion Shelter in Constitution Park.
Wednesday's concert features bluegrass band Hound Dog Hill. Chick-fil-A and an Italian ice cart will set up shop to sell snacks.
Waynesboro's Department of Parks and Recreation is putting together the Groovin' at the Greenway series to give families and music-lovers a place to unwind during the work week.
"The Greenway is fairly new for us, so we're excited to get people down here and get them exposed. And, of course, it all goes along with the downtown renaissance that's going on right now and getting people downtown, giving people another thing to do downtown, getting business owners downtown and helping bring business downtown," said Spencer Eavers, Waynesboro special event coordinator.
A father-son duo will bring their bluesy rock and reggae bands to Groovin' at the Greenway next Wednesday. The series wraps up on June 26 with the Findells.
The shows kick off at 6 p.m. in Constitution Park and continue until 8 p.m. If you're coming out, you can park in the Invista lot.
The Wednesday concerts move to Ridgeview Park in July and August. The second summer for the Rock n' Ridgeview series starts July 24.
