Today’s top five things to do in Summit County

Frisco’s Concert in the Park free music series concludes on Thursday, Aug. 14, with Brothers Comatose. Despite their name, the band members are anything but Comatose. They toss inflatable alligators into the crowd, they hand out chopsticks for audience-percussion participation and are known to jump down and play acoustic encores in the middle of the crowd at the end of a set. The free music runs from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Frisco Historic Park, 120 Main St., and concession sales benefit the National Repertory Orchestra. For more information, visit
