  • Nice place to walk, and walk the dog. Has a walking and bicycle bridge over to city island that has mini golf, small restaurant, a working riverboat, public boat launch. Riverfront park is currently repairing the lower walk at the river. Walk is 12ft wide and concrete. Grass and asphalt walks on the upper part. Runs along the river for miles.
  • Nice venue. Comfortably holds about 3000 people. Venders were nice. Food moderately priced. Stage could be seen from most of the venue. Alcohol and drink sections were a little confusing. Parking on the island or in the city. Police presence noticable but not over bearing.
