Unique doubleheader of fun coming Thursday

THURSDAY NIGHT ISN’T ALWAYS prime time for community events and activities, but this week provides an exception to that rule.

Anyone looking for something to do Thursday night will find not one, but two great events going on right here in Plymouth – one a brand-new, first-time event and the other a great community tradition that stretches back years and years.

The fun begins at 4 p.m. when the Downtown Plymouth Association hosts its first Taste of Plymouth event.

The east end of Mill Street will be closed off until 10 p.m. and visitors can sample tastes from 13 different local restaurants and food vendors while listening to music from Gumbo (4-6:30 p.m.) and Michael Ammons and the Water Street Hotshots (6:45-9:45 p.m.).

Taste of Plymouth promises to be a great opportunity to sample some of the wide variety of tastes Plymouth offers while socializing and enjoying some great music. And it all goes for a worthy cause – the Generations intergenerational center.

But that’s not the only thing there is to do Thursday night in Plymouth.

It’s also the first night of one of Plymouth’s great traditions, the summer concert series in City Park.

The Plymouth Municipal Band will kick the season off on the Stoll family bandstand on Grove Street, performing their usual variety of entertaining music.

It’s the start of a ten-concert series that’s always one of the highlights of summer in Plymouth.

The Plymouth Municipal Band takes the stage for six of the concerts, but there’s other wonderful music that will be offered in the picturesque City Park setting, including barbershop harmonies, the Manitowoc Marine Band, the big-band stylings of the Carl Laack Orchestra and of course, the ever-popular German Night July 23.

Generations of Plymouth residents have grown up taking in the City Park concerts on Thursday nights, passing on the tradition to succeeding generations in a true family-friendly event.

Attendance has been down a little for the concerts the past several years, which means a lot of people are missing out on a great night of free entertainment, at a time when free entertainment of any kind is getting rarer and rarer.

This Thursday night, then, offers not one but two opportunities to get off the couch, out of the house and out into the glorious weather to enjoy a fun time with families, friends and neighbors in Plymouth. Don’t miss the opportunity.
