EASTON — Summer’s here, and the time is right for dancing in the streets. That’s what the folks from the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, the Avalon Foundation and environmentalist groups are celebrating by presenting the Clean Water Concert Series.

This Saturday evening, June 15, the U.S. Navy Commodores will jazz up the town with their big band sound on Harrison Street, which will be closed to traffic between Dover Road and Goldsborough streets. It’s the second concert in the series.

A street festival with environmental groups, activities for kids, food vendors and more will begin at 6 p.m., and the music will start at 7.

Bring your own chair and prepare yourself for toe-tapping and swing dancing.

The concert is intended to promote the “Chesapeake Clean Water Blueprint,” a science-based plan that includes several states, intent on restoring the Chesapeake and its tributaries.

Among the other vendors, the Chesapeake Bay Foundation will have a tent and staff members who will explain how citizens can join the cause.

In case of rain, the concert will be at the Avalon Theatre, 40 E Dover St.

The first concert in the series was held June 1 and featured the Latin and acoustic rock sounds of Patrick Albán and Noche Latina. The last concert in the series will be Saturday, July 6, and feature the Motown, pop, rhythm and blues sounds of the XPDs.
