Check out the Stars and Stripes Forever Patriotic Concert on Saturday night at the D-Day Memorial in Bedford. It starts at 7 with "The Let's Dance Band." Then the Jefferson Choral Society hits the stage at 8 p.m. Don't forget to bring your own chair! Tickets are 8 dollars in advance or 10 at the door, children six to 18 pay just five bucks in advance or 8 at the door and children under six get in free.
