The Vinton Area Chamber of Commerce kicks off the 2017 Mingle at the Market concert series in style with the always popular Tru Sol Band from Myrtle Beach, S.C.
In past years, Tru Sol has performed the Winter Concert held by the Chamber at Woodland Place in Vinton each February.
The Mingle concerts are held at the Farmers’ Market in Vinton from 6:30 until 10 p.m. Music begins at 7 p.m.
For the first time this year, children will be admitted to the Mingle concerts. Admission is $5; children under the age of 12 may attend at no charge. Everyone will be ID’d at the gate; those age 21 and over will be given a wrist band; under age 21 will be marked on their hand.
The Mingle concerts benefit a different charity each month. The June proceeds will go to the Vinton Luncheon Lions Club.
Food concessions on June 10 will be provided by Texas Tavern. There will be an adult beverage garden provided by Blue Ridge Beverage and Deschutes Brewery.
Those who attend need to bring a lawn chair for seating.
