The Dalles Area Chamber of Commerce has decided to cancel the 2013 Music in the Park series, which includes the June 12, July 17 and Aug. 14 dates.
Cal McDermid, events coordinator for the chamber, said a “lack of financial sponsorship for this event led to the decision to cancel the series.” He said the chamber is not able to pay more than 75 percent of the cost for the concerts on its own.
“Although this is one less cultural series for The Dalles, there are other musical/cultural events that will be happening this summer,” he said.
The chamber endorses the “Fourth Sunday at the Fort” concert series that starts Sunday, June 23, with the Strawberry Mountain Band. The series continues July 28 with Tom McGraff playing Honky Tonk and The Gorge Winds Jazz Band performing Aug. 25.
