MEDINA – The Village Board agreed to allow alcoholic beverages to be available during a series of blues concerts this summer at State Street Park.

The Orleans Renaissance Group is planning the debut concert series for July 7, 14, 21 and 28 and Aug. 4 and 11. Chris Busch, the ORG coordinator for the concerts, said the performers will be announced soon.

The group modified its application to village for using the park to include alcoholic drinks from Leonard Oakes Estate Winery and 810 Meadworks.

State Street Park has a pavilion for bands to perform that debuted in 2019. The Village Board said it will review requests for alcohol at the park on a case-by-case basis. That way the board will continue to have a say in the events.
