(From Metro Parks)
The Army notified Metro Parks today that it will be providing a rock
band to perform in place of the Army First Corps Band which was
scheduled to play this Saturday evening, August 9 at Thea's Park. The
Corps concert band is needed to play on the base as part of a welcome
home for troops arriving this weekend.
"Although a lot of people were looking forward to the Army First Corps
Band performance, I'm know our residents will be understanding of the
reason for the change in line up as we all celebrate the return of the
troops", Lori Crace commented after receiving the news. "While the music
style will be very different from the Corps concert band, we appreciate
that other talented Army members will be taking the stage and rocking
the waterfront this weekend."
Both the concert and the Comcast Outdoor Cinema feature of "The
Waterhorse: Legend of the Deep" can be viewed from land or shore during
the 2nd Annual Float In Movie. A log boom will be available to boaters
who want to enjoy the entertainment from the Foss Waterway.
