All the rains of July made the fields in the center of Bedford bright green and lush.  My camera has been itching to get out on a Thursday night to see a free Bedford concert.  August 3rd was a perfect evening at sunny and 80 degrees.  It didn’t matter your age, there was something for everyone.

Editor’s Note: There will be a final concert (rain-delayed from July!) at 7 pm on Thursday, August 10: The Tom Buhl Trio

The fields and courts were alive and popping with color – softball, field hockey, soccer, basketball, pickleball, tennis, and most importantly lounging in a chair and listening to Knock on Wood.
