Wheat Ridge summer concert series draws fans despite wet weather

Posted

Neither rain, nor wind, nor dark, threatening skies could keep country rock band Twenty Hands High from entertaining a hearty bunch of Wheat Ridge music lovers during the City's July 6 Performances in the Park event.

Fans of all ages came to Anderson Park Pavilion to sit, listen, dance, sing along and maybe grab a bite from a food truck. 

A flash flood warning for the area, issued earlier in the evening, didn't spoil the fun. And rain that came down hard just before showtime eased to a drizzle by the middle of the second song.

Wheat Ridge Recreation Coordinator Linda Galambos wasn't surprised to see so many people braving the elements to make the show.

"I think this is just a total representation of Wheat Ridge and the spirit of the people here," she said.  "There are diehard people that come every week no matter what the band is, no matter what the weather is, and they love it."

The Performance in the Park concert series runs for seven weeks from June 22 through August 3 and features a different genre of  live music each week.  Next up: The Rheinlanders, who play traditional and popular German tunes. That show is July 13.

Details on remaining shows and the Children's Performance in the Park series, taking place each Wednesday morning, can be found at www.rootedinfun.com/performances.
