Music festival back at Oasis

PNT Staff Report

The Oasis State Park staff is preparing for the third annual Old Tyme Music concert.

The concert begins at 7 p.m. Saturday at the playground area at Oasis State Park.

The funds raised by the concert go directly to the Friends of Oasis and are used for improvements at the park. The group and the State Parks Department must agree on how the money is used.

The improvements being considered that could be made at Oasis State Park include a wishing well at the north end of the pond and making a handicap pier more accessible to the public, Oasis State Park Manager Jim Whary said.

The Portales-based Triple L Band will be performing for the third straight year.

“They always do a fabulous job,” Whary said. “It is an honor to have a local band that has played in places like Branson, Mo., want to perform here at Oasis.”
