Party on the Bridge this September

This September, join the Bridge Street Neck Neighborhood Association and Monsterrat College for a family-friendly block party in Remond Park!

The fun begins on September 7 from 4:00 pm to 9:00 pm at Remond Park located at the base of the Salem/Beverly Bridge- the perfect location for the neighborhood block party and to kick off Crossing Water, a week-long art festival set to span both communities.

The first Party on the Bridge will feature live music by local bands and a DJ, dancing, a shipping container art gallery, a beer garden by Notch Brewing, and more. Bring the kids for facepainting, games, and bubbles! Party on the Bridge will also feature raffles with 50% of the proceeds going towards support for the recent Bridge Street neck fire victims.

Additional entertainment will take place throughout the event provided by the Gato Belly Dance Troupe and Black Dog Brother. At 5:00 pm, join the rest of the community and the Greg Cole Dance and Drum Group for a group salsa lesson, and be sure to stay through the end of the event for the Bridge Lighting at 8:00 pm.

Crossing Water kicks off with the Party on the Bridge on September 7 and runs through September 14, with events scheduled weekends from 3:00-9:00 pm and weeknights from 6:00-9:00 pm. Additional events held throughout the week will include live music, storytelling, dance performances, and more. The festival will take place over, on, and under the Beverly/Salem Bridge, and more information about the week’s festivities is available at Montserrat.edu/CrossingWater.

Getting to Remond Park is easy with parking available along Bridge Street and overflow parking at the Carlton School lot. Walk from Carlton School to Remond Park in about 10 minutes, or take a Zagster bike or eScooter over (there is an eScooter station right by the park).
