MARIETTA – The Marietta community will again be “dancing in the street” during the Glover Park Concert Series. The series features local and regional acts on the last Friday night, April through September. The concerts are free but if you are looking for a “front-row seat,” a limited number of tables can be reserved for a fee. Table reservations are taken on a first come basis (and will sell out quickly) on the first working day of each month beginning at 8:00 a.m. Bring a picnic dinner (beer & wine is permitted) or dine in one of the many fine restaurants located on the square.

Blankets and lawn chairs may be set up in the park and tables are permitted in the street after 5:30 p.m. No personal tables, plastic ground covering or ropes, tape, stakes, etc. used to section off areas are permitted inside the park as they will be removed.
Join your fellow concert guest and participate in the “Table Decorating and Spirted Award Contest” sponsored by Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage. Judging will take place prior to each concert from 7:15 - 7:50 p.m. and the winner will announced during the opening remarks. Winners will receive a prize basket which includes passes to the Studio Move Grill-Marietta, Zaxby’s goodies and much more. The judges will circulate the area looking for groups with outstanding display for the best design, unique style, food/drink, most spirited, creative costumes, ambiance and theme of the evening entertainment. “We changed the name of the contest so more groups could get involved through celebrations like graduations, birthdays, holiday themes celebration or a throwback to the band’s theme, the sky is the limit”, says Sherry Noles, Branch Manager, Coldwell Banker, Marietta/West. There is no cost to participate and registration is not necessary.
