Popular Thursday night concert series in downtown Vernon has people (almost) dancing in the streets...



Civic Sounds is a civic hit.

The popular Thursday night concert series, held from 7 to 9 p.m. in front of the civic plaza, home to the Greater Vernon Museum on 32nd Avenue, has become very popular.

Several hundred concert-goers brought their own lawn chairs or blankets this past week to hear the fabulous sounds of wildly popular Vernon band Cod Gone Wild, whose modern Celtic rock music had people young and old tapping their toes.

There was nearly dancing in the streets as those in the audience who were moved to do more than tap their feet and clap their hands danced off to the side on the entrance leading to the former Vernon Library.

Rounding out the series in August are 4th Divide (adult contemporary, Aug. 9); The Goods (classic contemporary rock, Aug. 16, also Food Bank charity night); and Mace (classic rock, Aug. 23).

Civic Sounds is a presentation of the Downtown Vernon Association, Evolution Audio Visual, B.C. Hydro, Kiss-FM, RBC Royal Bank and the City of Vernon.
