Don't forget: free concert this Friday

Sarah Peacock performs at Birmingham Park July 1 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

MILTON, Ga., June 30, 2011 - Don't forget to kick off your Independence Day weekend with the second installment of "Concerts in the Park: Boogie Down at Birmingham" presented by Doctors Express Friday, July 1.

This show, like the other two in the series, will take place from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m at Milton's Birmingham Park, located behind Milton Fire Station No. 43, just west of the Birmingham Crossroads at 750 Hickory Flat Road (click here for directions). The 200-acre setting means lots of safe, open space to spread out and let the kids dance and play. And make sure to bring Frisbees, footballs, beach balls and whatever else you want to make it a fun time.

The City of Milton Parks and Recreation Department will have free giveaways to celebrate the holiday and the fact that July is Parks and Recreation month. There will also be food and beverages at the park provided by The Pup Truck, but feel free to bring a picnic and blanket and just enjoy the summer evening and free music. No alcohol is allowed in the park.

Nashville's Sarah Peacock, an Atlanta native, will rock Birmingham starting at 6:30 p.m. A true troubadour, the powerhouse vocalist averages more than 200 gigs a year, honing her blend of classic rock, country and pop.

She has shared the stage with Jessi Lynn, Barry Waldrep, Levi Lowrey and Clay Cook and appeared on Comcast, WGN, Me.TV, various FOX networks and radio stations across the country.

At the show, Peacock will have her first CD, "Straight for Your Heart," and a live album recorded at Decatur's Eddie's Attic for sale. To hear her music, visit
