For its third year, the City of Fall River and the Narrows Center for the Arts are bringing back Summer Evenings in the Park Series, offering free family-friendly events in the Fall River Parks with music, vendors, and more.

What to Expect at Summer Evenings in the Park Event Series

Live music, resource tables, arts and crafts, food, and fun will take place every Wednesday night in July and August from 5:30 pm to 8 pm at a different park each week. Griffin Park, Father Kelly Park, Pulaski Park, Maplewood Park, Ruggles Park, Kennedy Park, North Park, and Lafayette Park will take turns hosting the event series as the music plays and the Greater Fall River RE-CREATION serves hot dogs and hamburgers. Local food pantries will also be on-site to donate a bag of groceries to each attendee.

Featured musical acts like the SouthCoast Brass Band and the Marcus Monteiro Trio will set the tone, while Narrows studio artist Kevin Lamoureux will create an original spray paint mural at each park, making it a collaborative experience that all in attendance can participate in.

“The Narrows is excited to bring what we do at the Narrow Center into the neighborhoods of the Fall River,” said Patrick Norton, the Executive Director of the Narrows Center for the Arts. “This event series brings the neighborhoods together through fun and lively activities.”
