Published: May 25, 2023
With Summer Learning right around the corner, it’s time to celebrate! The Catawba County Library invites you to join us for our Summer Learning Kickoff featuring BIG BANG BOOM in concert and a Summer Activity Resource Fair on Friday, June 2nd at the Norman B. Coley Amphitheater at Conover City Park from 4 - 6 pm.
The featured event at this celebration is the kids rock concert put on by the band, BIG BANG BOOM. Established in 2007 out of Greensboro, North Carolina, this rockin’ power pop band consists of talented artists and long-time musicians. But this musical group doesn’t play just any ole’ average music…they write songs with a pop sensibility by cleverly mixing alternative, hip-hop, rock, country, and other genres to create music that both adults AND children can enjoy, because Big Bang Boom songs are fun and they teach you things! The concert will begin at 4:30 pm. For an added treat, free hotdogs will be available while supplies last.
Also featured is a summer activity resource fair, highlighting the details of summer programs and activities from agencies and organizations across the county. Talk with staff and learn more about the available summer programs from:
