North Bay Mayor Al McDonald says with the major music acts now announced for Summer in the Park, the rest is up to the community. McDonald says it’s up to people to get behind the annual event and buy wristbands. And chamber of commerce spokesman Charlie Elliott says the long weekend event is an economic engine and crucial to North Bay’s economy.
In addition to the music, the Million Dollar Hole-In-One is back after missing last year and back for another year is beach volleyball. Those are just two of the dozens of events planned for the summer long weekend. And chair of Summer in the Park, John Strang, says ticket prices for three days of music will stay at $29.99 until May 31st. After that, they jump to $35 dollars. The higher amount was supposed to kick in this past Monday.
