VINTON–Another huge crowd packed the Vinton Farmers’ Market on August 8 for the third Mingle at the Market of the 2015 season.
Terry Hannabass from the Fuzzy Logic Band performed on the stage and all through the crowd. Jerry Paris on drums and vocals with John Hodges and Stacy Stevens on guitar and vocals rounded out the group.
The Mingle at the Market series is in its sixth year, having its start in 2010. The concerts are sponsored by the Vinton Area Chamber of Commerce which is celebrating its 65th anniversary this year. The series will wind up on September 12 with a performance by the hugely popular band The WORX.
Miller Lite supplied the beer garden for the latest event. Vinton’s BBQ Grill restaurant located on Lee Avenue served concessions.
Fifty-fifty tickets at this concert benefitted the Vinton Luncheon Lions Club which will use the $208 collected for needs of area residents.
“We appreciate the amount of support we received from the crowd that evening,” said Lion Betty Reynolds.
