When the Music in the Air concert series kicks off in Kellogg Park Friday night, concert-goers may see a new addition in the form of a shiny new red popcorn wagon.
After 25 years of service, the Kiwanis Club of Plymouth has finally decided to retire its popcorn wagon, which has been around since 1988.
Craig Jagger, Kiwanis Club of Plymouth Treasurer said the old wagon was really tired.
"We bought it used and its been used every summer for 25 years," Jagger said. "Just like vehicles and mobile homes, it gets to the point where in order to serve customers efficiently, we needed to update it. And the wagon was a wagon - we wanted to keep the same feel. So the new wagon is actually a wagon - it's on wagon wheels and everything."
The Kiwanis Club of Plymouth paid for the new wagon by soliciting advertisers for sponsorships. Jagger said they were able to raise more than $20,000 in sponsorship money. Sponsors will be featured on the wagon, as well as on popcorn boxes.
There will be a dedication and ribbon cutting ceremony for the new wagon on Friday at 4 p.m. at the corner of Main Street and Penniman Avenue. The Kiwanis Club of Plymouth will hand out free popcorn to attendees.
The new wagon will open for the first Music in the Air concert at 6:30 p.m. Popcorn will be the standard price of $2 a box.
"It's fresh popped - it's a pretty good deal," Jagger said.
Popcorn sales at the Friday night concert series allow Kiwanis to give back to the community through volunteer efforts, as well as funding local programs for children and youth.
