Crosstown Band Concert begins at 6:30 p.m.

We are excited to announce that the Kenny Ice Cream Social is back for 2021! After not having the social for two years due to a rainout in 2019 and pandemic restrictions in 2020, we are ready to bring back the tradition of ice cream, a concert and outdoor fun. Please note the location for 2021 is the back parking lot at City Church (1501 W. 54th St.)

City Church and neighborhood volunteers will be on hand to scoop up cones of Sebastian Joe’s ice cream- yum! And if that isn’t reason enough to come, we’ll have a 10th year anniversary concert by the Crosstown Community Band and you can see the Kenny Community Garden, now in its 6th year. Kids can play on the church playground equipment. Be sure to bring a chair to sit and enjoy the concert. We can’t wait to see everyone IN PERSON on June 17!

Please help us spread the word and tell your friends and neighbors.
