Amphitheater welcomes fans to fun family venue

The grounds, lawns and facilities at Rushville’s Riverside Park Amphitheater have taken shape since it was established in 2005, providing the perfect backdrop for Saturday’s concert, part of the on-going free concert series at the park. The Echos and Band X performed to a lawn full of people on a sunny and pleasantly cool evening Saturday. Between school reunions, children playing, local organizations selling candy, popcorn and cotton candy, and the smooth music from the 50s, 60s and 70s, attendees to the free concert series appeared well entertained at the beautiful facility.

The venue is also a hit with performers who continue to comment about the great facility that a number of committed volunteers continue to add classic touches to. In addition to shuttle services, plenty of near-by parking and convenient restroom facilities, the Riverside Park Amphitheater grounds are mixing the historic with the new with stately brick sidewalks and much more.

Riverside Park Amphitheater is a premier outdoor music venue located at 100 West Water Street in Rushville. The venue is a great concert destination annually hosting live music events and creating a great family-friendly environment with all performances taking place on Friday and Saturday evenings.

Participants are encouraged to bring their own lawn chairs or blankets. Snacks and drinks are available for purchase. There is a beer garden on-site for adults over 21 years of age; however, no alcohol is to be brought into the park and all coolers are checked upon entry.

Parking is conveniently available in gravel lots or in surrounding business lots with easy shuttle service to and from the amphitheater. Special handicap parking is also available.

Looking ahead to the remainder of the season in August, WFMS 95.5 welcomes Levi Riggs Aug. 10. This Danville native has performed all over the world and has opened for country stars such as The Band Perry, Easton Corbin, Colt Ford, Justin Moore and Brett Eldredge.
