Charleston's free summer concert series returns Friday, June 3, to get the weekend started with a mix of music from a local band and a tribute to some special athletes.

Mothers Nature will get the show started at Moses Auto Group Live on the Levee about 6:30 p.m. at Haddad Riverfront Park.

The band, which plays dance, funk, rhythm and blues and classic rock, will play for about an hour and then the opening ceremony will be conducted for the West Virginia Special Olympics Summer Games. Athletes representing various counties in the state will have a procession and a ceremony will be held.

Mothers Nature will close out the evening with some more music down by the river.

WCHS-TV is the exclusive media partner of Live on the Levee that runs through Labor Day Weekend.

Live on the Levee supports five local charities with a strong emphasis on homelessness. This year's nonprofit partners are Roark Sullivan Lifeway Center, YWCA's Sojourners shelter, Covenant House, Samaritan Inn and Manna Meal.
