Exposition: Tunes At Twilight Is Back This Friday With A Blue-Themed Opening Performance

May 13, 2019

It’s almost time for Tunes at Twilight to return. If you’re heading out this Friday evening, be sure to grab a picnic blanket, your pets, your kids, some snacks, and head to Ivers Square at 7 p.m. for the free concert series.

Old Town Cape event coordinator Emily Vines says it’s a special edition of Tunes, featuring blues artist Paul Childers.

“We’re very excited to have Paul there,” says Vines. “Just after reading his bio and listening to some of his music, I think he’s going to be a perfect fit for this event.”

In addition to a craft beer sampling at 6 p.m. before the music starts, the U.S. Navy Blue Angels - in town for the Cape Air Show - will make an appearance for a meet-and-greet opportunity.

On a typical opening night, Old Town Cape sees nearly 500 to 600 people in attendance at Tunes. But, anticipating a larger turnout this year, Vines says they can’t wait to see how many people they can fit on the courthouse lawn.

“We’re going to test it out,” says Vines. “This is already a family friendly event, but I think adding in the blue angels, a lot of kids are going to be there with their families.”
