Another great concert was held July 10 at the Allen Park Goranson Band Shell highlighting Scandinavian music, dancers and the Allen Park Women’s Club Korv Burgers.

The Thule Children Dancers started the evening’s program and then the Thule Adult Dancers were featured during intermission. As the Jamestown Municipal Band performed a variety of music both old and new, the audience showed their appreciation by clapping and singing along.

This concert was the fifth in a series of nine scheduled concerts that are held on consecutive Wednesday evenings from 7-9 p.m. running though Aug. 7.

The Jamestown Municipal Band has performed in Allen Park since the 1950s, with musical events being held annually at its current venue since the construction of the Goranson Band Shell in 1966.

Allen Park Women’s Club has traditionally provided concert goers with hot popcorn, homemade fudge, penny candies, cold drinks, coffee and their famous hot dogs at family friendly prices.

The concession stand sits at the top of the hill in full view for customers’ convenience. Proceeds from the Allen Park Women’s Club concession sales are used to improve the Park and playground.

Recent projects include updating the kitchenette inside the stone building at the big pavilion as well as adding new benches at the top of the Band Shell area.

In addition to funding provided annually by the city of Jamestown, these performances are made available through the support of the Allen Park Women’s Club, Chautauqua Region Community Foundation; Chautauqua Theater Company, Fessenden, Laumer & DeAngelo, Lind Funeral Home; Local 134, American Federation of Musicians; Scandinavian Studies Program, Salon 1, The Resource Center, The United Arts Appeal of Chautauqua County Projects Pool Grant Program and UPMC Chautauqua Hospital.
