Groundhog Festival 2011

July 9, 2011

A large crowd gathered in Barclay Square Friday night to see Midnight Special, a classic rock band from Cincinnati, Ohio, as part of the Groundhog Fesival. Unlike last year, the skies did not open up with rain during Midnight Special’s show Friday, although showers earlier in the day suggested that the band might have gotten wet again.
