The ground may have been more wet than the night before, but the entertainment was anything but watered down as day two of Rock the Park hit the stage.
Friday’s (July 27) line up kicked off with The Romantics on stage and as ticket holders started to pack the park, grey clouds filled the sky above. By the time a very animated David Wilcox stepped on stage at 6 p.m., a deluge had drenched the fans but not their spirit.

Under umbrellas, rain ponchos and re-purposed garbage bags, it wasn’t long until the self-professed high sheriff of Hell had the crowd up and doing the Bearcat.
George Thorogood kept the party alive, hitting the stage next backed up by his band the Destroyers before The Steve Miller Band wrapped it all up for the night.
Saturday (July 28) is the last day for Rock the Park and just as the previous two days, there is another lineup of bands guaranteed to keep the walls of downtown echoing with bass.
First on the bill for Saturday is Prism at 4:30 followed by 54-40 at 6 p.m.
REO Speedwagon will then take over at 7:30 getting the crowd prepped for the final act of the weekend, BOSTON, who take over at 9:30 p.m.
The annual Rock the Park fundraiser has raised more than $1.2 million over the past eight years for Bethanys Hope Foundation to help in the fight against metachromatic leukodystrophy (MLD).
