SARATOGA SPRINGS – Several hundred music fans celebrated the August Place to Be this week by dancing to the good-time ‘60s Girl Groups/Classic Rock sounds of Betsy and the ByeGons in Congress Park. 

The Saratoga Summer Concert Series – staged 7 to 8:30 p.m. Tuesdays at the Congress Park War Memorial – continues Aug. 23 with Garland Nelson and Soul Session, before concluding Aug. 30 with Fenimore Blues. 

The free, family-friendly event invites the community to the park with their blankets and chairs for a spot on the lawn to enjoy some of the area’s favorite performers. 

The summer series is presented by the Saratoga Springs Heritage Area Visitor Center in partnership with Discover Saratoga and the City of Saratoga Springs. The Heritage Area Visitor Center, located at 297 Broadway, is the concert rain location.
