Rock the Block convenient parking/shuttle service Saturday


News Journal



WILMINGTON —Rock the Block is prepared to handle the crowds/overflow parking Saturday by offering a parking/shuttle service.

“We will offer shuttle provided by Amazon,” said Susan Valentine-Scott, executive director of the the Clinton County Convention and Visitors Bureau. “Thanks to our partners along with the Port Authority.”

The shuttle will run approximately every 30 minutes between the spacious paved parking lot at 1199 Airborne Road (at the Wilmington Air Park) and the corner of Mulberry and Sugartree Streets downtown.

This parking/shuttle will start at 3 p.m on Saturday and run through midnight.

Look for the signs.

Sunset Blvd. steps up

Friday night’s free concerts outside begin with Wanted: The Bon Jovi Tribute at 7 p.m. followed at 9 p.m. by Detroit’s Sunset Boulevard, “a high energy and a full blown ’80s cover featuring two dynamic vocalists — male and female — along with very talented musicians,” said Valentine-Scott.

Sunset Boulevard stepped up in a pinch after Bullet Boys, who were scheduled to perform Friday night, had to suddenly cancel.

“We were in their schedule and contracted,” Valentine-Scott posted on the Rock the Block Facebook page Thursday. “Out of our control and completely legit. They will be coming back soon. The band is heartbroken over this and is hoping to make this show up in the future!”
