Cornelia Airpark Concerts Begin

Kids and Paper Airplanes as Cornelia Airpark Concerts Begin

The kids can make paper airplanes as the music concert series kicks off this month.

Kids can construct paper airplanes, ride their scooters and bikes and dance in front of the stage as the Cornelia Airpark Concert series kicks off on Saturday, May 18 at  5:30 p.m. The concerts — which happen in a vintage airplane hanger in East Nashville’s Cornelia Fort Airpark, includes craft beers, wines and good, old community fun. The airpark is located beside Shelby Bottoms (in support of the Friends of Shelby Park programs) and concerts take place one Saturday per month, May through August. The main event (music!) will come from three local bands at each event.
