WEST HAVEN, Sept. 1, 2021 — Watch the “West Haven Centennial Concert Featuring Cherry Cherry & Main Street” on the city’s YouTube channel.

The two-hour show, part of the West Haven Centennial Concert Series, was showcased in Old Grove Park on Saturday, Aug. 28, with Cherry Cherry performing a Neil Diamond tribute and Main Street performing a Bob Seger tribute.

The concert, featuring opening remarks by Mayor Nancy R. Rossi, was sponsored by the American Colleges of Kombido, the First Congregational Church of West Haven and the City of West Haven Centennial Celebration Committee.

Radio personality Brian Smith was the master of ceremonies, and Elizabeth Shea sang the national anthem.

Savin Rock Fireworks Committee co-Chairwoman Sandy McCauley announced Gail Hande as the winner of the raffle who will push a “start button” to help launch the Centennial Fireworks on Friday, Sept. 3. Hande, of West Haven, was among dozens of supporters who purchased a $10 centennial lawn sign and was entered into the raffle for a chance to push the button.

A row of food and dessert trucks, including Franco’s Fried Dough-Licious, Sultan Kebab and Mister Softee, dished up eats and sweets on Palace Street.

The show was part of a six-month series of free events commemorating West Haven’s 1921 birth and its incorporation by the General Assembly as Connecticut’s youngest town.

Watch the concert on West Haven YouTube.
