The public is invited to dine, drink, and dance the night away at Harmon Park next Friday. Special Occasion Band will be taking the stage on Sept. 23, providing beach music, oldies, and more to set the mood for “Music in the Park,” which kicks off at 6 p.m.
In addition to an array of food vendors, wine and beer will be for sale in the park’s beer garden.
Recreation Supervisor Cady Ray told Scope News that this will be Kernersville Parks and Recreation’s first free concert since COVID-19 restrictions were lifted.
“We had a couple events where we had to limit capacity and have pre-registration, so we’re excited for this one to be open to everyone,” she said.
Free community events “are always well-attended and great for the whole family,” Ray noted, and this event is sure to appeal to locals who have missed such opportunities throughout the pandemic.

The venue, located at 152 South Main Street, is not only Kernersville’s first park, but Ray explained why it is the perfect spot for this concert.
“Harmon Park is ideal since it is in downtown Kernersville and walkable to other storefronts and activities,” she said. “It’s also one of the only parks with an open green space for us to host an event like this.”
Food trucks from Smokiin Mac, Sliders, Kona Ice, and JJ’s Cuban Kitchen will be serving up meals and refreshments, and adults with valid identification can grab a wristband to visit the beer garden.
