Entertainment Sponsor for WaterWalk Pavilion
The Pavilion will be open beginning Saturday, June 2 through Saturday, June 9 and will feature an Oldies concert on the final Saturday, as well as other musical offerings featuring regional and national talent throughout the week. The stage at WaterWalk will be a focus of entertainment for the discerning adult. Partnering with Splurge Magazine for the second year and a local radio station, attendance and awareness of WaterWalk Pavilion and the entertainment there, will continue to grow in 2012.
Plans are in the works to promote the venue to area civic groups, Young Professionals of Wichita and other professional associations. Parking for attendees is conveniently located in the WaterWalk garage on Main Street or the adjacent surface lots surrounding the Pavilion. The only requirement for admission to the Pavilion is a Riverfest button.
