Local group “Kentucky Rain” is the night's featured entertainers, and the boys will be taking center stage under the park's lower shelter house at 6 p.m.
Mountain storyteller Pam Holcomb will also be present to spin a yarn or two and to emcee the night's event.
“It promises to be a fun night of family entertainment,” said Jennifer McDaniels, one of the organizers of the event. “Special memories were made last summer from ‘Music In The Park.' It's a time to showcase local talent and to enjoy the serenity of a mountain evening on top of the state's highest park in elevation. Plus, you just might get to see a black bear.”
A hot dog supper, sponsored by the Black Bear Watchers and Friends of Kingdom Come State Park, will prelude the night's entertainment. Proceeds from the hot dog supper will be used for park programing and special events.
Tickets for the hot dog supper are currently on sale at $5 each. Those wising to purchase tickets should contact McDaniels at 573-4223, Kingdom Come State Park Ranger Danny Quillen at 589-2479 or Black Bear Watcher Roger Raleigh at 848-2165.
Tickets are limited, but some will be on sale Friday night at the park.
“We fell in love with Kingdom Come State Park a couple of summers ago,” said McDaniels. “And now, we want the rest of Harlan County, as well as people throughout the region, to rediscover this beautiful park, too.”
The bluegrass performance is free, along with an after-dinner marshmallow roast. Makings for s'mores will also be made available to the public for free.
