A pleasant evening with temperatures hovering in the upper 70s-lower 80s will provide a perfect backdrop Saturday for the first free “In the Park” concert at Oats Park’s Centennial Stage.

Presented in cooperation with the City of Fallon and Churchill Arts Council, Mariachi Flor de Toloache presents their show at 7:30 p.m. Food and beverages will be available for sale, or music aficionados may bring their chairs and a cooler with their favorite food and libations. After the concert (about 9 p.m.), stop in at the Arts Bar and check out the latest exhibits.

Next door at the Oats Park Pavilion is the third annual Churchill Economic Development Authority Business Council’s “Please Don’t Make Me Attend Another Event!” fundraiser, which kicks off the first outdoor concert with a barbecue and raffle.

All drawings will be done at the conclusion of the CEDA Business Council barbecue from 5-7 p.m.

Prizes will be individually raffled.
