SCARBOROUGH, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- The same promoter who is responsible for bringing musical acts like Tim McGraw and Lynyrd Skynyrd to Bangor's waterfront is now helping Southern Maine get in on the action.
What is just an empty, dusty field right now is where Alex Gray, Waterfront Concert promoter, and Steven Cobbett, of Scarborough Downs, is hoping to fill up with hundreds of concert-goers this summer. Cobbett says the "Music at the Track" concert series would help Scarborough Downs with their overhead costs, but also give an added boost to surrounding businesses.
"It's going to bring a lot of revenue into area businesses such as convenience stores, restaurants, hotels, motels," Cobbett said. "So I think it's going to be good for the community, good for Scarborough Downs. It's a good partnership we have with Bangor Waterfront."
