Last summer, Swarthmore Town Center was pleased to sponsor Thursday Night Live, a summer concert series in Swarthmore’s Central Park outdoor amphitheater. This free event, starting in June and running through September, included eight performances by local musicians. Concert attendees were encouraged to pack a picnic dinner or grab take-out from one of many eateries in town. It was a great season of live music under the stars, and we look forward to its return in 2019.
