TERRE HAUTE — The Terre Haute Community Band will perform during a free concert, “River Pirates & Ruffians,” with pre-concert activities at 7 p.m. and the concert at 8 on Saturday at Fairbanks Park.

Teen volunteers from the Vigo County Public Library will provide popcorn and snow cones, paint faces, and distribute free books and other pirate treasures to children in the audience.

The Conservatory of Music will run an instrument petting zoo, at which children can try out real instruments.

The rest of the concert will be conducted by Norm Hanson, instrumental music teacher for the Northeast School Corp. of Sullivan County, jazz ensemble director and pit orchestra conductor at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology and professional musician.
