No concert will take place on Father’s Day (June 20), when the park traditionally hosts a Villa Capri Cruisers car show. There also will only be one show on Aug. 29 because a car show will take place that day until 3 p.m.
The concert announcement noted that the Memorial Day program featuring the Ron Leas Big Band will take place at Veterans Memorial Park next to Scranton High School instead of Nay Aug Park.
