Who Dats will perform first concert at Medina’s new pavilion on Sunday
MEDINA – The Medina Business Association will show off the new pavilion in State Street Park on July 7 with the first concert to be presented in the new venue.
From 4 to 7 p.m. the Who Dats will entertain the community and an estimated 650 cyclists who are participating in Cycle the Erie Canal, an annual ride from Buffalo to Albany.
The pavilion/bandstand was built with community donations and support of the Medina Business Association.
Jim Hancock, chairman of the Medina Tourism Committee, said in the past, the cyclists have spent the night camping at Medina High School, but this year they will stay at the Orleans County 4-H Fairgrounds in Knowlesville.
The public is encouraged to bring their lawn chairs, listen to the music and welcome the cyclists.
Hancock said there should be a great turnout of cyclists, because the canal towpath has had significant improvements from Middleport to Brockport.
