Aurora, TD Canada Trust partner for Concerts in Park contest

Win yourself and three friends a premium concert experience this summer.

Aurora and TD Canada Trust have partnered to offer this exciting contest for anyone who plans to attend a concert during the eight weeks of free live musical entertainment Wednesday evenings from 7 to 9 p.m. throughout July and August.

With every food donation for the Aurora Food Pantry given at the entrance of the park on concert night, you get a ballot, town special event co-ordinator Shelley Ware said.

At the beginning of each concert, a name will be drawn from the ballot box. The winner and three guests will be invited to enjoy the concert in three TD green Muskoka chairs in front of the stage.

Winners will also receive a food voucher from each of the food vendors on site, which they can visit throughout the concert at no cost, she added.

On average, the concerts throughout the summer attract 1,700 people. On one occasion, a concert attracted 2,500 music enthusiasts, which filled the park from the stage to the Armouries building.

This year’s concert lineup includes something for everyone.
