“Some folk might remember the first free concert that took place as Fling on the Flats, which closed the celebrations of All Sooke Day,” said the Sooke Philharmonic in a press release.

“This year, conductor Michael Klazek is promising a few musical surprises that will harken back to that time and to Sooke’s remarkable logging heritage.”

The concert starts at 2:30 p.m. at Ed Macgregor Park.

Refreshments will be provided by the Harmony Project, but people are welcome to bring their own food and drinks.

The event will also feature a 50/50 draw, and a draw for patio chairs donated by Village Foods.
