Shark In The Park in Dover Makes a Triumphant Return Starting July 7
Rosie will be rocking The Rotary Arts Pavilion at Henry Law Park, Wednesday July 7th at 6pm as Shark In The Park makes it's triumphant return. Do you remember where it all began?
Down By The River?
Yes! It's a bit of a trick question.
It has always been at Henry Law Park (at least for the last 18 years or so that I've been here).
But way back in the the summer of 2003, it was located on the wooden platform that is adjacent to the Cocheco River, closest to the junction River Street and Henry Law Avenue.
And once upon a time, the time was completely different too!
These shows used to begin at 11AM on Thursdays and you can only imagine how hot things got during those two hours when the sun was highest in the sky.
We stuck to that schedule for a while, but thankfully, ended up moving to Wednesday nights from 6-8pm. A cooler timeslot weather wise AND it gives people who work during the day much better access to see these great shows.
Rosie - July 7th
Grenon - July 14th
Tapedeck Heroez - July 21st
Dancing Madly Backwards - July 28th
Aunt Peg - August 4th
Wellfleet - August 11th
I love the fact that the schedule has never gotten any smaller, back when I started here and dinosaurs ruled the Earth, it was a six week schedule. It has remained that way through thick and thin.
Another amazingly permanent feature of Shark In The Park?
It's completely free!
See you at 6pm on July 7th for Rosie!
