Historic Washington State Park will be hosting its final free concert of the 2018 “Music in the Park” series this Saturday at 7:30 p.m.

The theme of this Saturday’s concert is “Hempstead County Melodies”, celebrating the 200th year of Hempstead County’s existence. The concert will feature a song competition where musicians will perform their original, Hempstead County inspired songs before the audience and area judges. Judges will award the top three songwriters their part of $1000 in prizes.

After the song competition, attendees will be treated to a performance by Hempstead County band “Bluegrass Reunion”.

Josh Williams with Historic Washington encourages everyone one to come out Saturday and bring your lawn chairs or blanket to spread on the grounds of the 1874 Courthouse.

The concert will start around 7:30 p.m. The gift shop will be open for refreshments and Williams’ Tavern Restaurant will be open from 11 a.m. – 7 p.m. for pre-concert dining.
