The Apple Valley “Concerts in the Park” began last week and happen every Thursday in Civic Center Park next to Town Hall on Dale Evans Parkway through the summer. This week, come on down and shake whatever booty you have left to the sounds of “classic rock.” How “classic” it is depends on your age I suppose but anything before hip-hop and rap qualifies for me. Except for a week off for the July 4 holiday, the concerts continue every Thursday through Aug. 9.
