Whiskey Fever kicks off Marysville's Sounds of Summer concert series on July 13 at Jennings Park.

The City of Marysville's Sounds of Summer concert series and Popcorn in the Park movies started up again this July and will continue into August.

The two series put on free music and film showings for local families to come and enjoy at Jennings Park.

"We put on all the movies and concerts for our community members," said Lauren Woodmansee, cultural arts supervisor with the City of Marysville.

She said that these summer events help bring the community together and provide some entertainment for local families at the park.

"These kind of events help make our community stronger and a better place to live in," she said.

The Sounds of Summer concert series is held on Friday evenings, beginning at 7 p.m., at Jennings Park at 6915 Armar Rd., Marysville.

Bands play at the Lions Centennial Pavilion near the park's pond.

Acts include swing/rockabilly band Gin Gypsy on July 20, cajun/soul band File Gumbo on July 27, jazz band Ranger & the "Re-Arrangers" on Aug. 3 and top-40/classic rock/country band Old Town Tonic on Aug. 10.

The Popcorn in the Park film series are held on Saturday evenings at Jennings Park, near the ball fields in the northeast section of the park.

Beginning times vary based on when it gets dark enough to show the movies, but the films start at or after 9 p.m. typically.

This year the city is presenting "Jumanji" on July 21, "Cars 3" on July 28, "Wonder Woman" on Aug. 4, and "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" on Aug. 11.

The Kiwanis Club will be supporting the films by providing free popcorn again this year, and selling hot dogs and drinks.

"Kiwanis is also going to be selling ice cream at all the events this year," said Woodmansee.

The concert series is sponsored by Windermere Marysville, Sonic and Coca-Cola. The movie series is sponsored by Real Estate Rock Stars.

"We look forward to having a great summer," she said.
