“We’re thrilled to be able to bring back this tradition of music in Canton’s Heritage Park that has been a summer staple for over the last 20 years,” said Recreation Specialist Laura Mortier. “So many area residents have already let us know just how excited they are to be able to enjoy these outdoor concerts and see the Canton community safely come back together again.”
These events are free for all ages and featured family-friendly music, ranging from Rock to R&B.
