Friday after 5 will be moving to Pan head freds this year. Mayor Ron has banned alcohol sales in the park.

Wasn't alcohol sales already limited to inside the riverpark center and past the people stationed outside in the courtyard and on the deck/ main stage area, and of course the bars on 2nd?

Even during the BBQ festival there are beer gardens instead of vendors.

Why move when they have all that wonderful new park to expand into?

Besides Friday after five isn't all about the booze. I prefer it stay as family friendly as possible- it's one of the few times you can hear live music (that's GOOD) with your kids that are under 21, but still old enough you begin to have common interests-and some adults just prefer not having to dodge drunks everywhere they go to enjoy themselves on a summer evening in the town they pay taxes in, too.

thats seems like a waste to move from a multimillion dollar park to a local run bar.

People will believe anything they post. River park is not going to give all that money away and BBQ fest always has a beer garden!

The city does not want to involve themselves with crackheads and grim reapers. It is a funny concept though. Thanks for the creativeness.
