This year, three groups have been scheduled for Ray Judd’s summer series Music in the Park, sponsored by the Friends of Smith Mountain Lake State Park. They will appear on the fourth Saturday of the month:

• June 26 – Two young and two old

• July 24 – The Friday Nite Band

The groups will be accompanied by the Old Dominion Cloggers dance group, made up of young and old from the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Virginia.

They will perform clogging, a combination of freestyle flat-footin ‘and clogging to “Old Time or Bluegrass” style music. Some parts of the routines can be recognized from the square dance calls.

Performances are scheduled for 8 p.m. at the Smith Mountain Lake State Park Beach Pavilion. Folding chairs are suggested. Soft drinks, food, snacks and ice cream are available.

The cost is $ 7.00 per person. There is no parking charge. Children 12 and under enter free.
