Get your blanket and a picnic basket ready.
The Modesto Band of Stanislaus County's 91st season opens tonight in Graceada Park. The free concerts can be heard at 8 p.m. every Thursday through July 15.
Tonight's theme is "Just Cruzin," and will feature music from the 1950s and '60s to rev up for Modesto's Graffiti Summer celebration.
MoBand concerts typically draw more than 2,000 people to the park at Needham Street and Sycamore Avenue.
Some folks stake out the same piece of park grass for the shows year after year.
