Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center will show a little love to the Niagara community on Thursday, Aug. 18, with a summer celebration in Schoellkopf Park.

A free outdoor concert featuring music by The A-List Band and food specials by the Hard Rock Cafe, Niagara Falls USA, will be held from 5:30-7:30 p.m. The public is invited.

"This annual concert in our beautiful Schoellkopf Park is an opportunity for us to give heartfelt thanks to our neighbors and the greater Niagara community for the support they give us year-round," said Judi Nolan Powell, Memorial's vice president for foundation and community relations. "We'll be 'Rockin' the Park,' and we hope the public will come and rock with us."

The A-List Band covers songs from six decades with a playlist that ranges from '60s classic rock and '70s disco to the hits of the '90s and today. The popular band has been performing since 2006 and plays more than 100 shows a year.

Schoellkopf Park, located adjacent to Schoellkopf Health Center on the eastern end of Niagara Falls Memorial's downtown campus, was built in 1913 and was restored to its former majesty in a $630,000 makeover that was completed in 2008. Designed by award-winning landscape architect Joy Kuebler, it now looks much as it did nearly a century ago.
