The Emporia Municipal Band is presenting its Thursday night concerts for the 79th season in 2019.
Thursday, the band played 12 songs with the theme "Big and Little," with community members sitting on folding chairs and blankets in Fremont Park. Some small children played on the playground equipment as the band played.
Next Thursday, members of the Teachers Hall of Fame will be present to dance around the bandstand with some children. That will be a prelude to the Hall of Fame activities over the weekend. The concerts are at 8 p.m. each Thursday throughout the summer at Fremont Park and are free to the public.
