Free Summer Concert Series in Congress Park Kicks Off

By Staff Report | Entertainment

SARATOGA SPRINGS — Every summer, the Saratoga Springs Heritage Area explodes with activities for all. A popular happening about time is the Summer Concert Series. Free concerts are held from 7–8:30 p.m. in Historic Congress Park at the War Memorial directly across from the Canfield Casino. 

On Tuesday, August 6 from 6:30–8 p.m., Saratoga’s own Betsy and the ByeGons will entertain folks of all ages once again in Congress Park, kicking off the Saratoga Springs Visitor Center’s free Tuesday concert series. Betsy and “the boys” will perform the great early ‘60s music from the golden “Girl Group” era of rock ‘n roll.

Seen most recently in downtown Saratoga at “First Night,” their rollicking renditions of catchy pop tunes evoke those “happy days” of the early 1960s. So, whether you lived the ‘60s yourself or just dig that retro sound, Betsy and the ByeGons are sure to please.
