SHELTON, Conn. – It may have rained on and off, but that couldn't dampen the festive spirit as Shelton celebrated with a Downtown Sounds concert on Friday evening at Veterans Memorial Park.

On Friday, July 29, the band lineup featured the Kazoo Crew Family Band, Hubinger Street and The Alpaca Gnomes, with the gathering under tents as needed.

The many vendors included Reid’s BBQ, The Little Dog That Laughed, Raven & Rose Soaps, Hipponotic Candle and Andie’s Cookies, as well as an assortment of food trucks. There was even a beer garden set up.

The food trucks included: Caseue Cheese Truck, Common Bond Market, Dad’s Food Truck, Mama Dee’s Italian Kitchen, Gypsy Joe Café, Pierogies on Wheels, and Tipsy Cones.

The kids could do arts and crafts, and get their faces painted.

“This was a really good turnout. I’m glad the rain didn’t stop the concert or anything,” said Lisa Cheney, owner of The Little Dog That Laughed.

“It turned out to be a lot of fun. There have been so many people coming out to check things out."

As the Alpaca Gnomes went up on stage, everyone came out with gnome hats and danced up a storm close to the stage. Even small children had their own decorative hats to match and danced with their parents and friends.

The final concert in the series will be held on Friday, Aug. 5 from 5 to 9 p.m. featuring the bands Frank Viele and West End Blend.

And, Liberty Bank has sponsored Tipsy Cones to give the first 500 ice cream cones away for free on Friday, Aug. 5.
