Tarentum summer concert canceled for a third time because of rain

Tarentum’s summer concert series just can’t seem to catch a break.

This evening’s performance with MaryAnn Mangini and the Johnny Angel Trio at Riverview Memorial Park has been canceled because of rain, Councilwoman Carrie Fox, president of the borough’s recreation board, said Wednesday morning.

Thunderstorms were expected in the evening.

β€œThe weather has not been on our side this year,” Fox said.

It’s the third time that a performance has been canceled because of rain. In fact, the series hasn’t even gotten a chance to get started this year.

The group American Pie was supposed to start the series on June 13, but was rained out. They were rescheduled for the next week, June 20, but got washed out again.

The rain date for MaryAnn Mangini and the Johnny Angel Trio is Aug. 29.

The next scheduled performance is The Shiners, on July 11. The snack shack will open at 6 p.m., with the music starting β€” hopefully β€” at 7 p.m.
