We had a nice stroll along the riverfront with family this past weekend. I can see how this would be a nice area for outdoor concerts and festivals. Convenient metered street parking is available.

We were fortunate enough to be there for one of their free concerts. Street block closed so vendors could set up. Great evening to be outdoors!

A nice place to walk and see the river. The free Friday night entertainment brought out the crowds and food vendors. A fun place to be.

They have free concerts every Friday Night from May - August. I was staying in the hotel across the street and caught part of the festivities. It appears they have a lot of different venues throughout the year.
