      L'Anse Waterfront concerts start Thursday

      Summer concerts at the L'Anse Waterfront Park will start this Thursday with the Billy Butcher Bayou Band from Marquette.

      Concerts will run once a week through the second week of September featuring bands from all over the Upper Peninsula. They are every Thursday evening from 7- 9 p.m. The concerts are free and funded by the Downtown Development Authority of L'Anse.

      "It's a great way to spend a Thursday evening?? said Rik Moilanen, the Downtown Development Authority chair. ??We have a great variety of music; A lot of old-time music."

      The Waterfront Park will also have local vendors and a farmers market on the nights of the concerts. The list of bands playing will be posted in the L??Anse Sentinel paper.
