Starting July 8th, the longstanding lunchtime Picnic-Me-Up Summer Concert series at Jack Elstro Plaza is getting a new twist. Renamed for the year to “Eat Local Wednesdays”, the Richmond Parks & Recreation Department is teaming up with the Wayne County Area Chamber of Commerce to promote local restaurants in conjunction with the midweek concerts. Richmond and surrounding area residents are invited to pick up a to-go lunch from a local restaurant and bring it to Jack Elstro Plaza for a picnic lunch. Music will be provided courtesy of the Quigg Fund.
The concerts will take place every Wednesday from 11 am to 1 pm at Jack Elstro Plaza. Todd the Fox will be performing August 5th. Visit the Wayne County Area Chamber of Commerce's Facebook page for specials from local restaurants for Eat Local Wednesday!
