The signature staple of Stransky Park is its stunning waterfall, but on Thursdays in the summer it's live music. From 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm there is a different band scheduled. For Lloyd McCarter of Lloyd McCarter and the Honky Tonk Revival, it's a chance to play an outdoor venue that is family friendly.

"It's nice to get our of the norm of what we usually do. The whole family thing is something we enjoy. It's really cool to play for a mixed group of people," said McCarter.

"All summer long we have free concerts that we do at the neighborhood association. We put them on every Thursday night. We've been doing it for nine years. Bands play for a free-will donation. We have free refreshments," said Jim Heydt who has been promoting the concerts for seven of the nine years of the free concerts.

The concerts are free, but the donations help to bring talented musicians to the stage.

"They play downtown and they play their hearts out. Some of them in front of a few people. I want to remedy that in this venue here," said Heydt.

It's a venue that will bring music and families together all summer long.
