Ross Street Patio Parties are back for 2016, and Red Deerians are invited to celebrate at the official kick-off event Friday, June 3.

Two performances are scheduled for the kick-off, the first by singer-songwriter Randi Boulton from 12 – 1 p.m., followed by an early evening show by The Groove Machine from 4 – 6 p.m. During the evening performance interested guests will also have an opportunity to make dreamcatchers from recycled materials with local artist Michael Huyzer.

“The City of Red Deer is proud to continue supporting free, live entertainment on the Ross Street Patio,” said Wendy Meeres, Culture Community Development Coordinator for The City of Red Deer. “The relaxed atmosphere makes it a great place to start your weekend and enjoy the warm weather and great music throughout the summer.”

Ross Street Patio entertainment is a partnership between The City of Red Deer and the Downtown Business Association (DBA). The City hosts three more Patio Parties from 5 – 8 p.m. on July 8, August 5 and September 2, while the DBA supports programming on Tuesday and Thursday lunch hours and Wednesday evenings during the ATB Downtown Market. Events are free and open to the public.
