MEDINA – The Dave Viterna Group performed Thursday evening at State Street park in Medina as part of the third season of the Blue Thursdays concerts.

Organizers said about 1,250 people attended the concert, which is a new record for the series.

Viterna draws a big crowd every year, said Ken Daluisio, owner/operator of The Print Shop, which produces the concerts with the Orleans Renaissance Group.

When Viterna performed last year on June 22 at Blue Thursdays, about 1,000 attended.

But Thursday, the weather was perfect, bringing out even more people.

  • July 11: Nickel City Blues Band
  • July 18: Maria Aurigema
  • July 25: Thurman Brothers Band
