Red Deer’s Ross Street Patio opening on May 16

Plenty of music planned at the outdoor patio until Sept. 13

A sure sign of spring is when the Ross Street Patio opens — even if it is a little later than usual.

City crews will be out putting the barriers, tables and umbrellas in place for a May 16 opening, just ahead of the May long weekend.

The patio’s debut was delayed a week this year because of the weather.

Free live music performances are provided by The City of Red Deer and the Downtown Business Association throughout the summer and will feature a variety of artists and genres. The first performance is May 29 at 11:30 a.m.

Events continue through Thursday, September 13 on the following schedule:

•Tuesdays and Thursdays, 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

•Wednesdays, 4:30-6:30 p.m.

Friday Patio Parties, 6-10 p.m. June 15, July 13, and Aug. 10
