Two days of music at Foster Park

Weberfest, a two-day music fest, returns to the Kokomo Arts Pavilion in Foster Park today and Saturday — with a diverse musical lineup and a food truck festival to boot.

From 4 to 11 p.m. today, head out to the festival to hear all kinds of music, all capped off with a set from local band Shiny Penny & the Critical Shoes.

The music picks up again at 11 a.m. Saturday and runs throughout the day, all leading up to a set from Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band. From 4 to 10 p.m. Saturday, the festival will also be home to Kokomo’s first food truck fest, where a collection of regional food trucks will show up to peddle their tasty creations.

Admission to Weberfest is free. For more info, visit www.KokomoSummerSeries.com.

 

We Care Summer Bash returns

Head out to the We Care Summer Bash from 5 to 10 p.m. Saturday at We Care Park. There will be music, food, entertainment and plenty of fun — and the proceeds go to We Care.

The hog roast will be from 5 to 10 p.m. and include a pork sandwich, green beans, potato salad, blondie cookie and a soda. Adults are $7 and children 10 and younger are $4.

Make sure you bring your lawn chairs, because you won’t want to miss the music provided by Nancy Sattler and the Downtime Band.

We Care Park is located at the corner of East Gano and North Market streets. For more information, visit www.wwki.com.
