Music And Paws In The Park Returns To The Bradenton Riverwalk

BRADENTON, Fla. — (Bradenton, FL) The music is back! Downtown Bradenton’s 400-seat Mosaic Amphitheater on the Riverwalk becomes the beautiful backdrop once again for inspired live music when Realize Bradenton’s popular “Music and Paws in the Park” series returns on March 31, 2017. This free, family-friendly, five concert series is March 31, April 7, 14, 21, and 28, 6–8 p.m., at 606 3rd Ave W, in downtown Bradenton. Local craft beer and other beverages and snacks will be available for purchase.

Audience members are encouraged to bring picnic baskets, blankets, chairs—and their furry companions on leashes. Each event will showcase a different local band, and dogs from local shelters who will be available for adoption. The series is made possible, in part, with support from the Bradenton Downtown Development Authority, the Bradenton Herald, the Royal Pet Rescue, Moonracer No Kill Animal Rescue, and Friends of Manatee County Animal Services. Proceeds from the sale of beverages will benefit these local animal rescue organizations.
