(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) - The top-notch sound system at Lawrenceburg's all-new Civic Park will be put to good use this weekend during the Whiskey City Summerfest.
The new, free music event featuring local and regional bands happens Saturday, July 13 at the park at the corner of High and Short streets. Local musicians Brian "Biggin'" Noble and Brian DeBruler, who is president at Sol Records, are the day-long festival's organizers.
"It is something I had in mind for quite some time. After we put on an event at the VFW last year down in Harrison, I reached out to the city about the new park down here. Things just kind of fell together and we're excited to make use of such a wonderful facility," says DeBruler.
