Free Ride Concert in the Park

Assiniboine Park will be having a few free concerts in the park this summer, and I would like to check out FREE RIDE this July. Come join me!

Show starts at 8:30pm, but we shall find a spot before hand over by the Lyric Theatre.

You are welcome to bring a small snack for all to share and have a mini picnic if you feel up to it.

No $2 Meet up fee.

Here is a video so you can see the music FREE RIDE plays:

(NOTE: I will go early and grab a spot. I will bring a portable table to put our snacks on. I want to try to park close to the Lyric Theatre. I don't plan to be close to the stage, BUT even with it at the back. You may want to bring a portable chair.)

    Thanks, Todd! Must have been my doppleganger because I had to work last night. Thought I had changed my RSVP, but I've found the connection to Facebook has been a bit funky lately. Glad to hear everyone had a good time.

    July 10

    • Stacey

      Worst case scenario, you will hear the music from the footbridge. If you follow it over into the park, then look left, you will see where the band is playing. We will be in that area. If you look right, you will see the duck pond and washrooms. We wont be there.

    • Aisha

      Thank you Stacey
      Now I know :)

      July 11

  • Colleen

    I can't believe how many events you people plan. Not that I want winter but that's gonna most likely be when I can join more of them.

    July 10

    • Stacey

      I really enjoy planning the events. It makes life better for all.

    I am looking forward to my first outing with the group. I hope to bring along some veggies and dip.

    July 10

  • Tannis

    This my first out with this group. Am sure I will find. Not sure about picnic but if I come early will bring something.

    July 10

    • Stacey

      We will see you then.

      July 10

  • Shirley

    Costco is no longer carrying the Sweet chili chips so I will pick up some chips of another sort. I was disappointed because those sweet chili chips were so tasty.

    July 10

    • Stacey

      They were good. Sounds good.

      July 10

  • Stacey

    Can anyone bring mosquito repellant, just in case? I think they fogged in that area, but in the evening some may come out.

    July 10

  • Elisha

    Do we know what people are bringing? So we won't have a hole lot of one thing and nothing of the other??? I was thinking of bringing a Pasta Salad

    July 9

    • Jin

      I don't think I will have time to prepare any food. I may not do the picnic. Is that ok?

      July 9

    • Stacey

      That's fine.

      July 9

  • Stacey

    I hear it is your birthday on Friday Paula! Happy big 30!

    1 · July 7

  • Jane C.

    This will be my first event with Out and About. silly question - but how will I find the group at the park?

    July 6

    • Stacey

      Not a silly question, a good one. I would see if you can remember faces from the profiles. Also we will be near the Lyric Theatre but at the back. I am setting up a table for snacks people are bringing. If I remember I will bring a sign that says out and about Winnipeg and attach it to the table.

      July 6

    • Jane C.

      Thank you!

      July 7

  • Dennie

    This is an awesome band.
    Video of them As the Beatles

  • Kadian

    This will be my first time attending an event with out and about social group. I probably won't be able to make it at 7pm. Is it ok to get there around 8/8:30pm?

    July 6

    • Stacey

      That should be fine. Only issue is finding us among the crowd. We will be over by the Lyric Theatre, but not close up. Near the back. I am bringing a table to put snacks on and people are bringing portable chairs to sit on. You can sit on the ground, but I would rather be comfortable.

      July 6

  • kimberly

    I have to work that night. Have fun

    July 6

  • Elisha

    I don't want to sound dumb... But I have never been to Assiniboine park before. So where is this Lyric stage?

    July 3

    • Stacey

      Take a look at the map of the park I posted, Elisha. It will make it easier to find the Lyric.

      July 3

    • Elisha

      Awesome thank you!!

      July 3

  • Mary A.

    I LOVE Free Ride!

    May 18

    • Stacey

      ...and it is a great excuse to get together without spending a fortune.

      July 3

  • Betty R.

    I will bring a few chicken legs.

    May 19

  • Elisha

    I will bring a salad of some sorts maybe pasta salad? Or a potato salad. (Haven't made up my mind yet)

    June 7

  • Cheron L.

    Thanks for the information, ladies, and the video. Now I know, and yes, I'll be there! I'll bring egg salad sandwiches.

    June 7

  • Lisa G.

    Shoot! Had to change my RSVP to a "No". Much as I'd like to go, just realized that's the same night as my next Rainbow Stage outing with a friend. It's the first time they're tackling Mel Brooks, so hope I don't wish I stayed home with DVDs instead (tee hee).

    Hope y'all have a blast at the concert!

    June 30

  • Shirley

    I will bring some Munchies - will have to see if Costco still carry the Sweet Chili Pepper Chips - if not I will see what else interesting they have.

    June 16

  • Colleen

    this a great band! great covers of the Beatles!
