Bring your signs of love, hope and condolence to our sister city, Manchester, England UK. After the CAST alumni open the evening at 6 p.m., a moment of silence will be held and then a group photo, by drone, will be taken. This photo will be sent to the Lord Mayor of Manchester, UK.

Cover to Cover, a local band comprised of almost all Manchester residents, will be the headline band. Brian Lettieri, Steve Palla, Paul Molinari, Jame Z, Mike Polowitzer, all of Manchester and Efrain Aguero of Newington, have been entertaining in a wide variety of venues, summer concert series, and marinas in Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island for the past eight years, and is a favorite at Champlinís Resort and Marina on Block Island. They're also a supporter of a number of local causes, providing time and energy to raise money for the community. With over 100 songs in their repertoire, including the music of Chicago, Van Morrison, Elton John, Billy Joel, The Beatles, Elvis and so many more, they get people singing along and dancing at every event.

Food trucks will be available with a wide variety of food and drink and patrons are reminded to come early with blankets and chairs to get the best seating.

The park is located in Downtown Manchester, behind Mary Cheney Library, Local food vendors are invited to contact the concert chairperson at Kevin Zingler, to sign up to sell food at the event. Pride blankets will be sold that night as well, $20, cash or check.
