It was a hot night for Wednesday’s Pastorius Park concert but turnout was pretty good considering there was a Severe Heat Warning in effect. Temperatures were in the mid-80s but with the heat index it felt like 90.
The concert is part of Chestnut Hill Community Association’s summer concert series at Pastorius Park. Next Wednesday’s concert featuring the West Philadelphia Orchestra will be the final event of the summer.
