On Saturday, June 17, Grant-Amherst Business Association will be hosting the annual Discover Amherst Street festival (11am – 5pm). This year’s festival is anticipated to be one of the best yet, with a number of new businesses participating on the street. The family friendly event is a tribute to the history of Black Rock. It’s also a time to celebrate all of the great advancements that are being made.
