When marketing people talk about “activating space,” they’re basically describing what events like River Rhythms do every year: make something happen in an area that doesn’t usually see a lot of action (in the case of River Rhythms, Pere Marquette Park, every Wednesday from June 12 through August 28). Here’s the River Rhythms lineup for 2019. Music begins at 6:30 p.m. and goes until 9 p.m. Also: it’s free!
