(Louisville, KY– November 2, 2011)  The Southeast Tourism Society has named WFPK Waterfront Wednesday one of the Top 20 Events for the month of April 2012. The WFPK Waterfront Wednesday concerts take place on the last Wednesday of the month, from April through September in Waterfront Park, and are free and open to the public. The Top 20 Events are listed on the Southeast Tourism Society websites: www.southeasttourism.org and www.escapetothesoutheast.com.

 

The success of the concert series, presented in partnership by 91.9 WFPK-FM and Waterfront Development Corporation, reached new heights during its tenth season. “We’re thrilled that the appeal of these concerts drew an average of 7,000 people this season, culminating in September with around 12,000,” said Stacy Owen, WFPK Progarm Director. “Moving from the Harbor Lawn to the larger space of the Big Four Lawn made it possible for more people to enjoy the music, festivities and the beautifulWaterfrontPark.”

 

“The WFPK Waterfront Wednesday concerts have become a Lousiville institution,” said Ashley Smith of Waterfront Development Corporation. “They bring our local community together and draw people from around the region to our city. When the warm weather arrives, people know where to find the music – impeccably programmed. We look forward to accommodating even larger audiences on the Big Four Lawn in 2012 and are proud to have the April 2012 concert chosen as one of the Top 20 Events in the Southeast.
