‘We have been hosting events in this special little place for the past four years and this year, we teamed up with some awesome partners to provide a series of great block parties to kick off everyone’s weekend,” said True Local Events’ president Tom Dobrez. “Bring your dancing shoes and prepare yourself for good times and tunes riverside with friends and family alike.,“ added Dobrez.

The series kicks off on July 28th with doors opening at 4:30pm and the fun lasting until 8:00pm.

In addition to the the food and funk offerings, guests can learn about virtual reality from one of the Riverwalk’s newest businesses Space while enjoying a Dark and Stormys or perhaps a delicious brew from Crazy Mountain Brewery.
