Come on down to Canon City's Veterans Park to kick back, relax after the Royal Gorge fire and give a big thumbs up to area firefighters. Musicians will jam together in a free concert. They include oldie-but-goodie Lobo Loggins, players from Side Project and the Atomic Fireballs. Maybe even emcee/guitarist Jon Karroll, too. Firefighter karaoke and an eating contest are on tap. Money raised goes to local, rural and volunteer fire departments: Canon City, Florence, Tallahassee, Deer Mountain and Cotopaxi. 6 p.m. Friday, U.S. 50 west of Canon City, 275-7488.
