On Wednesday, June 29, Kaleidoscope Eyes, an acoustic Beatles tribute band, will perform at the River Rhapsody concert series.

The Batavia Park District's summer cultural arts concert series, which began June 15, continues into August.

 

This concert series features a variety of lively and eclectic musical acts that are sure to strike a chord regardless of one's taste in music.

Concerts are 7-8:30 p.m. at the Peg Bond Center band shell, 151 N. Island Ave., nestled along the Batavia Riverwalk and picturesque Depot Pond. No registration is needed for these free concerts.

Back by popular demand is the option to purchase red or white wine, provided by Acquaviva Winery, during the concerts. New this year is a special treat: an assortment of savory and sweet food options, on sale from Fernando's Street Kitchen and Koconuts Shave Ice.

Fernando's Street Kitchen will have irresistible street tacos for sale, along with some favorite Mexican fare featured at their Batavia restaurant.

The Batavia-based shave ice truck features an array of flavors, such as mango, root beer, piña colada, and wedding cake, along with various candy and cream toppings. Your pooch won't be left out as they also offer puppy ice.
