The Friends of West Chester Parks & Recreation presents the Marshall Square Park Summer Concert Series for 2012 starting at 6:30pm. Free for the entire family. Featured tomorrow is a special Billie Joel night with John Grecia. I also recieved some more information from the Marshall Square Park website stating, “Setup starts around 6PM for grilling hot dogs and hamburgers off to the side, likely using the picnic tables to set up the food, so bring your usual blankets or chairs for concert viewing. E-mail the Clarks the type of dish you would like to bring (apps, sides, desserts, drinks). This could be a great neighbor celebration!!! The more the merrier so feel free to extend the invitation.” For more information check out the flyer!
If you dread parking in Downtown West Chester like I do (because you forgot your quarters) The West Chester Business Improvement District has found a way to help us out! They declared that everyone can enjoy FREE PARKING at downtown meters starting at noon every Friday in July & August. This awesome deal just began last Friday but if you missed it then, there are plenty more fun Fridays left to take advantage of it. So get out and enjoy the lively streets of Downtown West Chester without the worries! Parking will continue to be free from noon on every Friday in July & August, but only at the meters. There are no signs detailing this on the meters so be sure to spread the word and spread it fast!
