FLINT, MI — A downtown parking lot turns into a place of concern on Friday, May 13.
From 6-9 p.m., the Flint Flat Lot will be the site of Rock the Lot 2022, a free downtown concert hosted by ELGA Credit Union and Team One Credit Union.
Although this is an inaugural event, Cheryl Sclater, public relations manager at ELGA Credit Union, said she expects strong attendance thanks in part to a strong push on social media. .
“What a great opportunity for the young people in this community to get out there and kick off the weekend and kick off the summer,” Sclater said. “We haven’t been together (due to the COVID-19 pandemic), what better way to get together and experience downtown.”
The Jerry Ross Band and the Sheriff Federspiel and Band will perform. Food trucks, including Charlie’s Smokin’ BBQ and Mr. Prince Gourmet, will also be on site.
Sclater said those interested in attending should bring their own lawn chairs. She pointed out that the event is free and parking will also be free.
UM-Flint offers free event parking on the Harrison Street ramp and in the “T” lot parking lot.
One thousand free t-shirts will be given away while supplies last.
