Sounds of summer fill Ocean Park

Every other Sunday night, Ocean Park in Oak Bluffs opens its bandstand to the classic tunes of the Vineyard Haven Band. Visitors are welcome to sit and enjoy the music with a chair or a picnic blanket, or just to catch a few bars of the joyful tunes as they pass through the park to shopping, ice cream, and dinner engagements.

The bi-weekly performances draw vacationers, Island regulars, and often special groups like Camp Jabberwocky to dance and twirl about the gazebo. Performances are held every other Sunday at Owen Park in Vineyard Haven. Remaining dates for this season include August 3, Owen Park; August 10, Ocean Park; August 17, Owen Park; August 20, The Tabernacle (Illumination Night show); and August 24, Ocean Park. All shows begin at 8 pm.
