COVINGTON, Va. (WDBJ) - In Covington, they kicked off the holiday weekend with a little music.

The amphitheater at the Jackson River Sports Complex hosted the band Five Dollar Shakes, with plenty of room for the crowd in their 16-acre field.

The concert season was originally scheduled to start in May, but was canceled by the COIVD shutdown.

Mayor Tom SIbold said, “We’ll have the social distancing, we’ll have the COVID signs up and the suggested guidelines for people to follow, and we’ll see what happens.”

The show began at 6:30, and fireworks were planned for July 4th. The series continues with Saturday concerts through the remainder of the summer.
