Now in its 10th week, Sounds and Sights on Thursday Nights, presented by Golling Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram of Chelsea, continues its free summer concert series Thursday, Aug.10 from 6:30 until 8:30 p.m. Professional artists perform at 11 staged areas located throughout downtown Chelsea featuring music, dance, and family entertainment.

This week, newcomers GFL Trio performs funk at Katie’s Korner on the library lawn.  At South Street, Bus Stop Poets present American acoustic rock while Victor McDermott and the New American Standard sings originals at the East Alley stage.

The Blue Light Band performs a mix of pop, blues, and rock on East Middle Street, and folk group John Ponder Band take the stage in the West Side Gym lot on West Middle Street.

Just north of the railroad tracks, The Devil Elvis Show perform a rockabilly tribute to Elvis at the Glazier Building while traditional acoustic musicians, Strings and Things, return to the Clocktower Gazebo.

Fun for the whole family continues with Colors the Clown at the Clocktower Courtyard stage, and 3 Generations Twisters for the kids at Main Street Alley.

Chelsea Chalk Art, beneath the Chelsea Clocktower on Main Street, provides chalk and drawing examples for all ages and levels of expertise.  The theme this week is “Super Heroes”.        

Visitors are also encouraged to take in the sights of the Chelsea SculptureWalk, and the Chelsea Portrait Project installation on Jackson and Main St.
