The Party Boat Band can put on a crowd-swaying show and the Aboite Township Fire Department can grill a mean hot dog, and both proved those skills July 7 at the summer’s first Concert on the Green at Indian Trails Park.

The local band, which boasts the Midwest’s best “rock and trop rock” music from the ‘70s, ‘80s and ‘90s, played for an audience relaxing on lawn chairs and blankets.

The fire department and friends cooked up hot dogs for just $2 each, as demand continued well into show time.

The music continues each at 7 p.m. each Wednesday evening through August.

Next up is popular local guitarist and balladeer Joe Justice, keeping one of his 18 appearances in July. From festivals to wineries, fans will follow Justice from Roanoke to Ohio this month.

Admission to Concerts on the Green and to township-owned Indian Trails Park is free. Parking is free and plentiful.

Catch the ice cream truck, walk the dog and watch the athletic fields, too, as you catch the concert in the park off Aboite Center Road past the Jorgensen Family YMCA.
