BECKLEY - The end of the week is about to get a lot more fun for residents in and around the City of Beckley.
Although we're experiencing a soggy Thursday, Fridays in the Park will look like this. The 15-week concert series is set to begin Friday at Word Park. The popular event will be back for its 24th year and feature a variety of shows and vendors.
Fridays in the Park will kick off with Bill Campbell, a 12-year-old girl named Chloe and the Greater Beckley Christian School.
Event organizers said it's something everyone looks forward to during the summer months.
“It gives the folks that work Uptown something different to do on their lunch hours, to come out and have lunch and enjoy some of our local talent, as well as residents that aren't working -- retirees -- a lot of them come down and enjoy the day, as well as visitors to our community -- tourists that might want to see what's going on,” Jill Moorefield said.
Friday’s concert will run from 11:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. The entertainment is free to the public.
