The annual Belfast Summer Nights series continues with an outdoor performance by two great local bands-to-dance-to Thursday, July 12 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the corner of Main and High streets.

Longtime local favorites the Willy Kelly Band features Willy Kelly, Joe Allard, Jeff Densmore and Ando Anderson. Adding an eclectic mix of upbeat, rockin’ and beloved covers from the 1980s will be The Hips, so dancing shoes are a must.

The music is free, although donations for the series are always welcomed. Concertgoers should bring lawn seating and maybe a picnic. For more information, call 322-7123. Next up in the series Thursday, July 19 will be the Tom Luther Quintet in Heritage.
