March 24, 2016 @ 8:00 pm
Music For Everyone has joined forces with The Willie Marble Xperience (and their mysteriously swampadelic sound), and Tellus360 in a concert series to benefit #Lancaster non-profit organizations. This month’s concert will benefit the Lancaster Recreation Commission’s event Open Streets Lancaster – May 15th – 11am to 3pm and will be rocking Tellus360 on March 24th!
Doors will be at 7:00pm and the show will begin at 8:00pm. The event is for ages 21+ and admission is by a suggested donation of $10.
About the Lancaster Recreation Commission:
Operating since 1909 as a community partnership of the City of Lancaster, School District of Lancaster and Lancaster Township, the Lancaster Recreation Commission provides over 400 neighborhood-based recreation and learning opportunities for all ages – with an emphasis on affordable programs for children – at schools, parks, playgrounds, and other indoor and outdoor facilities.
Programs include youth and adult instructional sports programs and leagues, senior centers, fitness and wellness classes, summer playgrounds and day camps, club activities, cultural arts programs, before and after school care, preschool activities and seasonal family events.
Our most important functions are the intangible ones – family interaction, the friends we make, memories of playing on the playground, being part of a team or learning to swim. Our recreation services bring people together and make our community stronger.
Our mission is to provide quality and affordable recreation and learning opportunities to Lancaster residents.
About Open Streets Lancaster:
Open Streets Lancaster temporarily closes the streets linking Farnum Park to Musser Park (Water Street and Chestnut Street) to motorized vehicles on a spring Sunday afternoon so that you can use them for healthy and fun activities. Our Lancaster event joins more than 90 Open Streets initiatives in the United States and Canada.
People traffic replaces car traffic – and the streets become ‘paved parks’ where people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds can come out and improve their physical and mental health.
Open Streets Lancaster is different than a block party or street fair. It is part of a broad City effort to encourage physical activity, and help people meet, make social connections, and reimagine the City as a place to walk and bike for transportation.
Open Streets Lancaster creates blocks of safe, car-free streets so that you can walk, bike, shop, participate in spontaneous play activities, and get to know your neighbors.
We hope you’ll join us this year and enjoy your City from a different perspective. Come wander at Open Streets and have some fun! You can even bring your dog.
And, it’s free!
Bike, blade, walk – whatever – in the middle of the streets!
