With a festive atmosphere featuring live music from the region's most popular and emerging bands and with special dining options from the restaurants and Market merchants of Belvedere Square, "Summer Sounds at the Square" has become the place to be on Friday nights, May 27 through September 2, in north Baltimore. The series is free and open to the public. NEW this year: The Square's Kanjizai Martial Arts sponsors Ninja Obstacles (at Kanjizai), an activity area for kids featuring obstacle courses, nerf battles, and more. On June 10, July 8, and August 12, BARCS brings its BFF Waggin Adoption Van so concert-goers can meet four-legged friends and adopt a cat or dog on site. There's something for everyone at the Square this summer! Belvedere Square restaurants and Market food merchants will provide a wide range of scrumptious treats and beverages made on site and perfect for outdoor dining. Also, local non-profits and community organizations such as the Govans Branch of the Enoch Pratt Library will be on site on specific dates. A complete list of participants is at http://www.belvederesquare.com.
