The other week, Mrs. Large and I were driving along Bunker Hill Avenue in Waterbury, when we heard a strange sound, live music being played by real life musicians. We also saw something that we haven't seen in awhile - around 200 people, safely distanced,  enjoying live music. Turns out that the Bunker Hill Neighborhood Association and Mayor O'Leary's Council on Culture had teamed up to present the band, Soul Funk, for the neighborhood. There was even a food truck on site. It was a welcome sight. Here's a few photos of the event from the BHNA's Facebook page:

Well, if you missed this one like we did, good news, there's going to be another free concert in the park, and here's the details: on Friday September 11, 2020 at 6PM, The Cutouts will be taking to the portable stage in the park. There is an announced rain date of Friday September 18, 2020, just in case. Duke's Delish, LLC, out of Middletown, will be on site offering burgers, dogs, clam chowder, and more. The BHNA suggests you bring your chairs, bug spray, blankets, and hats. Also, they want you to maintain 15 feet of social distance between groups, and 6 feet from each other in line at the food vendor. They will have hand sanitizer available at the fence entrance, they encourage the use of face masks if you can't socially distance, and also suggest that you stay home if you're not feeling well.

The event is free, but the Bunker Hill Neighborhood Association has suggested that you bring a couple non-perishable food items with you as they will be collected at the event to support an area food pantry.
