SALAMANCA, N.Y. — Picture the scene: a beautiful summer evening in Allegany State Park, great music — and you smack in the middle of it!

It can all be yours to enjoy at Allegany’s third Rock the Park event. The night kicks off with the musical stylings of park Artist in Residence Dave Stayner. He will be followed by Bradford’s own Marshmellow Overcoat. This free event starts at 6 p.m. at the Red House Beach area on Friday, July 11.

Also, that night at the beach there will be a chicken barbeque and “Sample Salamanca.” This new event, sponsored by the Salamanca Chamber of Commerce offers attendees a chance to check out area merchants and what they have to offer!

So feel free to bring a picnic or grab something at the snack bar, but definitely come and Rock the Park! For more information on this event contact Katie Vecellio (katie.vecellio@parks.ny.gov) or call (716) 354-9101, ext. 236.
