North Plains brings back it concerts in local parks
Live music outdoors ? — it's a hallmark of summer, and you don't have to travel far for the opportunity to get your fix.
The annual concert series in North Plains, about 10 miles from Forest Grove and Hillsboro, returns, with food trucks to accompany local bands performing in parks around town.
On the docket is Joyride, a Portland band singing classic rock from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Friday, June 21, at Jessie Mays Park, 30975 N.W. Hillcrest St., North Plains. Momma's Grub, a North Plains-based food truck known for its street tacos will be on site.
From 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Friday, July 26, country artist Tom Mann will perform at Sunset Ridge Park, 28590 N.W. Kelly Drive, with Hillsboro eatery The Dirty Weiner serving up gourmet hot dogs and nachos.
The last concert of the series is from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 23, at Jessie Mays Park, with the Hillsboro Symphony Jazz Band showcasing their talent while Momma's Grub returns as the featured food of the night.
Resident Patti Burns helps with city events year-round, and says the series has been a chance to experience small-town life while having fun for the past five years.
"People are invited to bring their chairs and blankets," she said. "This is a free event that the city puts on. We are still a small town, and we are growing. This is a chance to enjoy everyone's company."
