2013 Central Bank Thursday Night Live
Join us in Downtown Lexington every Thursday evening, April 4 through October 31, 2013 for Central Bank Thursday Night Live! Come to the Fifth Third Pavilion at Cheapside Park from 4:30pm - 8:00pm for beverages, food from local restaurants and of course, great music by live bands! There is no admission charge to come and listen to the bands play - food and beverages will be available for purchase on a cash basis.
EVENT TIMES: Food and beverage booths will be set up and open for business at 4:30pm until 8:00pm. The weekly band plays from 5:30pm to 7:30pm.
EVENT LOCATION: The event takes place every week at the Fifth Third Bank Pavilion in Cheapside Park, between West Main Street and West Short Street, just west of Upper Street. The park is directly adjacent to the Old Courthouse. Follow this link for a map showing Cheapside Park.
IN THE CASE OF RAIN: In the event of rain, the band will be moved under the Fifth Third Bank Pavilion at Cheapside Park. The pavilion is HUGE, with lots of covered space to sit down, so the party won't stop due to a little drizzle
PARKING: Parking in Downtown can be found by visiting www.lexpark.org or www.parking.com. Note: The DLC is not affiliated with any of the parking lots or garages in Downtown Lexington. The Colt Trolley operates Downtown starting at 6:00pm and makes a stop on Main Street right in front of Cheapside Park, and on Upper Street at Main Street, among many other stops throughout Downtown. The Colt is free, so getting to the event from almost anywhere Downtown is a breeze!
PETS:Friendly pets are welcome at the event - just please be sure to pick up after them.
FAMILY FUN: Central Bank Thursday Night Live concerts are family-friendly events free to the public. Bring your own beach chair or blanket and enjoy the sounds of the best bands in Lexington!
FOOD: Various food will be available for purchase each night. Food must be purchased directly from each of these vendors.
**Please be aware that bringing your own alcohol into Cheapside Park is strictly prohibited. Not only is it illegal, but by purchasing beer from the beer booth, you are supporting the continuation of this free concert series. The DLC relies on the proceeds from beer sales to fund the expenses associated with this event. If you enjoy these concerts, then show your support for Central Bank Thursday Night live by purchasing a beer!
