One I remember as a kid was Island park on Helena where they had the bandshell and had entertainment. Had awesome fireworks on the 4th. Don't know when that was discontinued.

Used to enjoy the band concerts at the Diehl Band Shell from home. We lived down the river and it acted like a megaphone for us. Played with the Municipal Band a few times. The last time was the 4th of July concert in '72. Left for the Army 2 days later. Will never forget playing Sousa marches under Don Bassett, a member of Sousa's band after his Marine Corps days. Sure miss that time, and Dayton.
