As I was posting that info into this blog, I was reminiscing about the early beginnings of FA5. The summer concert series began in 1996, and few years later I began volunteering each Friday evening. If I recall, FA5 began with only a handful of shows each Friday night, we maybe drinks available and occasional food. Now FA5 has grown into a 16-week signature festival for the entire tri-state hosting more than 50,000 visitors each season on the riverfront! Truly amazing to see the growth!
Go see LOCASH tonight and enjoy what has become the “Best Community Event!”
Fun. Free. Friends. Friday After 5 is Where the Weekend Begins! www.FridayAfter5.com
