Friends of Philadelphia Parks Bus Tour 2016
Every year the Stewardship Unit hosts a bus tour of our parks, hosted by Friends’ groups. South Philadelphia was featured this year….
Jamz@Julian 2016 went out with a great concert on Wednesday the 24th, with a large audience gathered to hear Gretchen Elise and Maurice Authentic Hayman- as well as to hear some of our very youngest neighbors honing their musical abilities with Gretchen’s “Great Basket o’ Instruments”….
We had a blast all summer long (and even had a couple DNC delegates from California drop by in July)….
Very special thanks to Brandon Krakowsky for organizing Jamz this year. This would not have been possible without him.
Food service was provided by Los Camaradas. Thanks to our sponsors Galit Abramovitz Winokur of Real Estate With Heart and Steven Zelinger of Law Office of Steven M. Zelinger, LLC.
This coming Wednesday August 24th, 6-8 PM is our *last* concert of the Summer. We’re ending on a high note with a performer who is no stranger to our park’s musical series, Gretchen Elise. Bring a picnic and enjoy another evening of fine music.
