Memorial Day is known as a transition between seasons, and as such, it’s a fitting weekend for Memory Lanes to host its annual block party.

Now entering its eighth year, the block party, held May 28-29, moves the excitement from the bowling lanes and to the parking lot, with a variety of musical guests to get the party started.

This year’s event features a total of 21 artists performing throughout the weekend on multiple stages. The majority of the activity takes place outdoors, but in later hours the party moves to the smaller stage inside. Scheduled acts include:

  • Mixed Blood Majority
  • Legendary Shack Shakers
  • Davina the Vagabonds
  • What Tyrants
  • Fury Things
  • Jessica Lee Wilkes

Admission is $5 per day, and free after 10pm when the party moves indoors. Daytime hours are open to all ages. In addition to live music, Memory Lanes features bowling, volleyball, various arcade activities, and additional special entertainment for the event.
