Waterworks Park was a pretty happening place
this past weekend. For the contemporary set,
Adam Lambert and Train rocked 102.5’s summer
concert on Saturday, and for those feeling nostalgic,
KC and the Sunshine Band and Joan Jett and the
Blackharts brought the funk and the noise on
Sunday for 93.3’s Party in the Park. I do not
envy the clean-up crews.
