Downs Park staff members and volunteers hope for a pair of dry Sundays so they may present the final programs of their rain-disrupted Bayside Concert Series.
Five of the 17 concerts to date, four of them Sunday evening programs, were canceled because of rain. The other was a Saturday afternoon performance by the Annapolis Symphony Orchestra.
Threatening weather resulted in a smaller-than-expected turnout Sept. 3 for a children's concert by folk singer Sue Trainor. Park officials believe that thunderstorms in the Glen Burnie area probably dampened turnout even though the evening was sunny.
The final shows will feature the Annapolis-based folk-rock Angie Miller Band on Sunday and the German oompah music of the Continentals on Sept. 24. Each will take the stage from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
The park is near the eastern end of Mountain Road. The concerts are free, but a $4 entrance fee is charged to vehicles without an annual county parks permit.
For information about the status of the shows:410-222-6230. For general information about Downs Park programs: 410-222-6239.
