Around Town~Weekend Activities

Big Holiday weekend starts today....well we are starting it today!

Tonight the Summer Concert Series continues at Riverside Park on Riverside Drive. Tonight will be a special pre-4th of July concert with P.T.’s Gatortail Dixieland Band.

The Coke Zero 400 is this weekend at the Daytona International Speedway. The Speedway has donated a suite for the Coke Zero 400 4th of July Race. All proceeds go to Halifax Health Hospice of Volusia Flagler for the SEV Care Center. Because this is a fundraiser for Hospice it is tax deductible. What better way to see the race than for a great cause. For tickets call Rose Traub, 386-846-3429 or email

I saw you on "mycharmingkids" and just had to see if you had pictures. I live in California, grew up in Chicago and spent many vacations in the late 70's and early 80's in New Smyrna Beach. It was really wonderful being right on the beach. It just brought back some great memories.
