With the long weekend coming, I thought it was worth mentioning now that PRONK! is once again returning for its annual festival of brass street bands from all over the place. This year there are twenty bands, including folks from as far west as Olympia, Washington, and as far east as Paris, France. The daytime portion of PRONK! happens in Kennedy Plaza this year, and then at 5:30 everyone will parade down to the Hurricane Barrier for the evening portion of the fest. Just remember: it’s very specifically not a Columbus Day parade.
