The new wagon will debut during Friday's Music in the Air concert at Kellogg Park.

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.

That message didn't stop downtown Plymouth's resident dancing man George Harvell from strutting his stuff in front of the stage, as is customary at downtown concerts.
