Enjoy Southwood concerts

As the Parkersburg City Council representative for District 2, I would like to share some exciting news and invite everyone to attend the June 4 Mayor’s Music Fest at Southwood Park. This will be the first concert to be held at the new “Al Smith Music Stage” and the band will be South of the River.

After the storm in June 2012 destroyed the stage in Southwood Park, Mayor Newell supported rebuilding the stage for events in the park. Because of his support and the hard work of the men in the Public Works and the Parks Department, we will again be able to enjoy concerts at Southwood Park this year.

The concerts at Southwood Park are sponsored by local businesses. Without their support, we would not have this free entertainment. Please thank them for their support.

So bring a lawn chair and come out June 4 from 7-8 p.m. and visit with friends and enjoy South of the River! Hope to see you there.
