They started doing these shows again in 2003 and have kept the stage clean not all messed up with graffiti, plus it gives familes a chance to spend time together so many people bring there kids.
And in closing i wish you would just shut up!!!
I was there on Saturday for the last 2 bands. I saw no problems in the park, and did notice a good police presence. It was cool to see so many families with their kids like tom8010 said. Seemed like a well behaved jovial crowd. That being said, I also think that stingray66 has a right to speak his opinion without being told to 'shut up!!!'.
yes it was a great time i was there from 11:30 am till the end cause i've been trying for 9 years to get the band i work for on that stage and they finally got a chance to play and rocked the place, and i get a little pissed when people bash the concerts i know the announcer who is a cop and know all these people don't get paid they volunteer there time and do alot for the community and as stated in another post everywhere you have something going on the park, phillies games, etc you have a few bad apples that's just the world we live in.

Possibly they can make announcements at the venue asking people to use the parking lots or use welsh road for parking? Have townwatch set up on the perimeter of the park to monitor people dumping trash?

This area isn't within the Boundaries of Mayfair, please contact either:
a) Holmesburg Civic Association
b) Winchester Park TownWatch/Civic
c) Tacony-Holmesburg TownWatch
d) Holme Circle Civic Association
It isnt about the area its about who is sponsoring the concert. I am sure the Mayfair Civic and touwnwatch would be interested in hearing from the neighbors to try and rectify this. But lets find out who sponsors the concert and go from there.

Last night show was was absolutely AWESOME!
Here are some new signs that we now have lining the walkway.
We take our neighbors concerns very seriously!
We came upon the June 2nd concert by accident and I think we'll come by for that Beatles/U2 show. Love it!
I normally can't go to any of these concerts, it's generally in the middle of my workweek, and I live in South Philly.....but, I work this weekend, and my BF and I were planning to ride our bikes in Pennypack park tomorrow....he took the day off Wednesday, yay! So, perhaps we can stay for the show? I imagine it's ok to have people with bikes there, right, it's an open air stage?
