    hmm, not concert Saturday night? Not even a video dance party? wow!

    • hanoverff

      Hi Michele, We are having a FREE event Friday night… a licensed All Ages event at the Raceway featuring the Greg Williams Band (formerly Urban Rodeo) from 9-1. This wasn’t confirmed yet when the ‘tentative schedule’ was published. Greg Williams has competed on The Next Country Star, and will be performing at Havelock Country Jamboree on August 18. We are very excited to have him perform for us, and to be able to offer this special live entertainment event to our community. Hope you can join us!

    When will you bring someone big in again like Paul brandt. I bought tickets for a classified concert last year due to low ticket scenarios is that the reason we don’t get them round here no more?

    • hanoverff

      Hi Joseph, Unfortunately our tickets sales over the years have been low and we have consistently lost money on these events. Paul Brandt was a great success, but it is increasingly harder to find performers who will appeal to a large audience and to get people out to our events. Greg Williams will put on a great show for us on August 11. We hope that you will be able to join us, and bring your friends!
