Tarentum Fest '05

The young people of Tarentum had an exciting concert by homegrown talent on Saturday, July 30, from 2 to 9 PM in Riverview Park. The Tarentum Fest '05 concert was free. Friends and family of the many band members were there to support and enjoy the musicians. The language was clean and the gathering was free of alcohol.

Black Friday
The opening act was Black Friday.

Subject of Change
Subject of Change, a band from Springdale, was the next to play, and did not let the crowd down.

Drain This Blood
Drain This Blood had the crowd on its feet. I wish I had been able to stay for the remainder of the acts, which included Featherlight.

During this concert there were a number of announcements made about a petition for a skateboard park for Tarentum. The Borough Council has approved an application for a grant for a skateboard park that will provide a safe place for young people in Tarentum to skate.

Hi All,

I think a skateboard park is a bad idea. That isn't where money should be invested. There are a few much better ideas and I'd be more than willing to share those with you or anyone else from the Park Bench -- even up river.
