During June and July, Thursday evenings are special in Bonner Springs because of the downtown concerts presented in Kelly Murphy Park, Second and Elm. The band, consisting of over 85 members, performs 10 concerts during the summer season at 8:30 pm in the park. Various civic organizations sponsor ice cream socials that give it that old-fashioned feeling. Rehearsals are held prior to each concert in the Bonner Springs High School cafeteria. If you would like to become a member of the band, please contact Bill Turley at (913) 687-8248. Otherwise, bring your lawn chair and sit back and enjoy an evening of music.
