The Jam in Jubilee Summer Concert Series kicked off last night in Jubilee Park, located in downtown Abbotsford in the area of South Fraser Way and McCallum Road.

The show in the park featured performances by Rachel & Ted, Jay Arner and Kin.

Following the park performances, the event then moved to Townhall Public House for a show by Rare Vos as part of the new "After Dark Series," hosted by UFV's CiVL Radio.

Jam in Jubilee is run entirely by volunteers, and the past four series were fuelled by an estimated 25,000 volunteer hours.

This year's concert series runs every Thursday at 7 p.m. from July 10 to Aug. 14.
