It's been a long, hard Winter that lasted a whole lot longer than we expected. But Spring is here with Summer soon to follow and that means one thing: live music, outdoors.

Every Thursday night in August, City Square Park in Marion is the place to be from 6-9 p.m. The annual "Uptown Getdown" concert series mixes live music, great food and lots of fun. The exciting news is that the band lineup has just been announced:

Marion Uptown Getdown is a free event and our Townsquare Media radio stations (KDAT, KRNA, KHAK, i107.1) are proud to help sponsor it with Farmers State Bank, Fosters Heating and Air Conditioning, ImOn Communications, MercyCare Community Physicians and the Marion Chamber of Commerce.

So please join us Thursday nights this August for live and local fun, food and music with Marion Uptown Getdown!
