The Lewiston Council on the Arts will bring back Lewiston's own 1960s rock musicians and friends for the 14th annual "Summer of '69."
Starting at 6 p.m. Thursday, July 12, there will be a pre-"Summer of '69" party/fundraiser at the Stone House, 755 Center St. There is a minimum $5 donation per person.
At 6 p.m. Friday, the weekend's main event will be held at the Hennepin Park Gazebo at South Fourth and Center streets. The fun-filled evening will feature musical favorites from the '60s, '70s and '80s as performed by members of Lewiston's own super-groups (including the County Orphanage, the Invaders and the Lewiston All Stars). Special guest and Grammy Award-winner Gary Baker, former Invader County Orphanage bass player, will perform some of his No. 1 hit songs.
The gazebo event is free and open to the public thanks to the sponsorship of Sevenson Environmental Services and Modern Corporation.
Finally, the party heads to the Ontario House, Youngstown's own Stone Jug, at 6 p.m. Saturday. This event also is free to attend.
