Alive At Five Concert Series To Move To New Location
Improvements being made to the Corning Preserve this summer will force the city to move the concert series to a different location for the season.
According to the Times Union, Mayor Kathy Sheehan says an alternate site has not been chosen yet, but she is 'confident the Thursday night concerts will find a home.'
This past Friday/Earth Day, Sheehan announced the park is getting $5 million in upgrades and will be renamed Corning Riverfront Park. The improvements will include upgrades to the bike paths, additional parking, new park benches, and kiosks to promote events going in the city.
This year's Alive at Five concert series will run every Thursday evening from June 9 - August 4. According to Albanyevents.org, the 2016 concert lineup will be announced soon. Hopefully it includes some country acts!
