A free, family-friendly outdoor concert will take place next weekend in Summerville. 

A table of free food (Subway sandwiches) and a jump castle will be set up 5-7 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 8, at Brown Family Park in Nexton, 3000 Front St. A band, formed by local musicians interested in promoting unity in the community, will perform. Attendees are encouraged to bring lawn chairs, wear masks and socially distance while in the park. 

The event, organized by Natasha King, is meant to promote "love, peace and a sense of comfort."
