The Conway Community Band will open its 2013 season with a concert at 7:30 Friday night at Simon Park.

The concert is free and all are invited to take a lawn chair or blanket and enjoy an evening of fun music in beautiful downtown Conway, says Ricky Brooks, conductor.

The concert theme is "The Circus," music for children of all ages.

Highlights from the concert include "Dream Circus," "Clowns," "Carnival of the Animals," "Cirque du Soleil," and "Circus Days March." A circus ringmaster will introduce the different acts (music) during the concert.

This is the fourth season of The Conway Community Band; sponsors include Kim Williams, executive director of the Downtown Partnership, the Log Cabin Democrat, Arvest Bank, and the Conway Convention and Visitors Bureau.
