12 concerts on tap for summer series


The Ralph Thauvette Summer Concert Series has expanded to 12 free concerts this summer in downtown Crestline. All concerts take place at the corner of Seltzer and Scott streets.

“The concerts were well attended last year,” said Clayton Herold, director of the t (CCDT). “Moving all of the concerts to Seltzer and Scott streets allows for more shade and people to be closer to downtown restaurants.”

Downtown restaurants will be open, and the concerts will take place within the Crestline DORA (Designated Outdoor Refreshment Area). The DORA is a designated public space where alcoholic beverages can legally be consumed. Crestline’s DORA allows for the consumption of beer, wine, or liquor within the DORA zone as long as they have a DORA cup, which is available at local establishments serving alcohol.

The DORA is in effect from 5-10 p.m. on Thursdays, 5-11 p.m. on Fridays, and 12-11 p.m. on Saturdays. A DORA map and FAQ sheet can be found on the chamber’s website at galion-crestlinechamber.org/crestline-dora.

All concerts begin at 7 p.m.
