Grosse Pointe Park — Make plans now to attend the popular After 6 on Kercheval, 6 to 10 p.m. this Saturday, July 22, on Kercheval in the Park.

This is the second in the annual summer series of fun nights for children and adults alike. This week’s entertainment is provided by Nick Kuhl and the Gang, Three Star Ping Pong Parlor, Pirates Revenge Carnival Ride, the Grosse Pointe Sail Club dunk tank, street muralist Carson Matlock and the Detroit Circus.

“A new addition for this week’s After 6 is the addition of three hours of assorted street performing acts from the Detroit Circus and Three Star Ping Pong Parlor,” said Chad Craig, Parks and Recreation director. “Street muralist Carson Matlock will bring a splash of color to the event as he creates graffiti with the help of the After 6 goers.”

Guests at After 6 are advised to come hungry, as there will be several restaurant and beverage options for both adults and children. Two Park favorites, Cabbage Patch Café and Fairfax Market, will offer a variety of items, along with JB’s Hut, GoCheez Food Truck, Tana Falls Ginger Beer, Comfort Café Food Truck, People’s Pierogi Collective and Grillz On Wheelz.

There also will be an array of vendors offering items for everyone in the family. Shop Kercheval for items from the Detroit Lions, Harvey Animal Hospital, Detroit Street Apparel, Gallery Animato, Divine Crystal, PurseNality Mobile Boutique, Me’Shea Bath & Body, Motor City Brick, Clay and Glass and Thirty-One.

“With more vendors, entertainers and food and beverage options, the After 6 on Kercheval series continues to get bigger and better each year,” Craig said, “and everything is within walking distance or a trolley ride from your doorstep.”

The K-Line Trolley runs on Kercheval, from Moross to the Park Market area 5 to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday nights. Riders younger than 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

The entertainment at After 6 is free; however, there is a charge for food and beverage.
