The 2013 music offerings continue to roll out, with a look at the talented line-up at River Fest Park. The park is just a stone’s throw from the Inner Harbor (see Facebook), and offers visitors a chance to relax on a wonderful law next to the Buffalo River, while catching some amazing local acts with the grain elevators as a backdrop. This is the perfect place to ride a bike to, following the bike trail that leads from Canalside, behind the DL&W Train Terminal, and to the front door of The Swannie House. From there the park is within eyeshot.
Starting on Wednesday, June 26 from 6:30pm until 10:30pm the Valley Community Association will kick off its “Wednesday Night Summer Concert Series”. If you have not yet caught a show at this venue, be sure to make it down to the park for a concert this summer. The concert site is in the middle of the Inner and Outer Harbors, and is a significant destination that offers a mix of old industrial neighborhoods with a spark of renewed outdoor life in the form of rowers and kayakers on the river. It won’t be long before Buffalo River Fest Park becomes the epicenter for myriad year ’round activities, and it all starts with this awesome concert series.
Parking is free and widely available. Food and refreshments will be sold at the concert, with all proceeds supporting maintenance of the Buffalo River Fest Park and other riverfront development efforts. No personal coolers will be allowed. Spectators are encouraged to bring their own lawn chairs and blankets.
