Grab a friend, a lawn chair or blanket and head on over to Ivory Perry Park for the season finale of the Ivory Perry Park Concert Series, featuring soul, funk, jazz and R&B artist Tony Simmons. The concert will be held Sunday, Aug. 28, 6 p.m., at the intersection of Belt and Clemens Avenue.

The concert series emerged out of the tragic death of a 10-year-old boy who was mauled to death in the park by a pack of wild dogs in 2001.

At the time of the child's death, the park had been abandoned. The grass was overgrown and the grounds were covered with litter and glass. Because of the efforts of many concerned citizens, local congregation members, businesses, neighbors, St. Louis City public officials, the Missouri Arts Council and the Whitaker Foundation, the park is now the majestic site of the annual concert series.

The concert will feature free face painting for children, arts and crafts, and games sponsored by Old Newsboys Day. There will be attendance prizes and a raffle. Food and beverages will be available for purchase.

Ivory Perry Park, formerly Visitation Park, is located at 800 N. Belt Ave. Off of Delmar, turn north on Belt Avenue at Connect Care Hospital. Belt Avenue is one stoplight east of DeBaliviere or one light west of Union.

A food drive benefiting a local food pantry will take place in conjunction with the concert. Consider bringing a non-perishable donation. For more information, visit www.ivoryperrypark.com or call Archilla Buford at 367-2112.
