Catty concerts a hit

The Catasauqua Borough summer concert series continues to be a hit in the borough. The free concerts take place 7-10 p.m. Friday nights at the amphitheater at Catasauqua Park and Playground, 501 American St.

Each concert has a sponsor and features a 50/50 raffle and concession stand sales to help support the park and the municipal pool.

The most recent concert was held July 23, when Steel Creek entertained with modern country and some classic rock and roll tunes.

Phoenix Forge was the sponsor for the concert.

The 50/50 raffle prize was nearly $350. According to Jill Smerdon and Howard Cunningham, they have collected more than $2,000 for the park.

Chelsea Lyn Meyer Band, sponsored by J.P. Mascaro, performed alternative rock July 16.

Rain threatened the concert, sponsored by Witt’s Tree Service, but the concert was held as scheduled.
