Ã¢â‚¬Å“We wanted to keep the good times coming to downtown Fulton following the momentum of a very successful Tunes in June program,Ã¢â‚¬Â Dean said.

As in the past, the city will be blocking off S. First St. between Rochester and Cayuga streets from 3:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.to create this special venue where weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll set up 32 picnic tables and four food booths.

Ã¢â‚¬Å“Entertainment, set under the riverfront gazebo, will be provided by The Cortini Brothers & Friends. Food will be available for sale by Blue Moon Grill,Tavern on the Lock, Red Baron Pizza, and Shremp Hot Dogs.
