Rock Around the Block kicks off at noon – 10 p.m. on Saturday and runs noon – 9 p.m. on Sunday. Lincoln Avenue will be closed to automobiles from Belmont to Roscoe; Marshfield will temporarily convert to a two-way street to accommodate detouring traffic.
Residents will still have access to all of the shops and restaurants along Lincoln during the festival. The “suggested” donation is $5.
The music lineup, divided between north and south stages, leans heavily toward cover and tribute bands. Too White Crew and 16 Candles headline on Saturday; Wedding Banned and Guns 4 Roses close out the fest on Sunday. RATB benefits the West Lakeview Neighbors.
