The weather is going to be beautiful this week, so nice, we think a picnic in the park on a busy Friday is a perfect retreat from work. Romare Bearden Park, a 5.4 acre park in Uptown Charlotte, is now open and will be hosting a wide variety of activities and festivals, many of them free. Music Box Lunch is a concert series taking place on Tuesdays and Fridays in September from 11:30am to 1pm. It will pick up again in April. Romare Bearden Park is between Church and Mint Streets, and between 3rd Street and MLK Jr. Boulevard. This Friday is Carrie Marshall (jazz duo). Get out and enjoy the weather!
