Happy Birthday to Art Walk!

Riverside Avondale Preservation, Wingard Creative and the folks behind Chew and Orsay have been working with the JTA on several initiatives regarding the Riverside Trolley service. We are excited to announce that the JTA has agreed to one of our ideas!

The JTA is going to help us celebrate Art Walk's 7th Birthday by extending the Riverside Trolley service until midnight next Wednesday, November 3rd. This is great news for our neighborhood because it is a step toward providing extended hours of service on the weekends (keep your fingers crossed!)

Riverside Fine Arts Concert Series

Ana Vidovic is an extraordinary talent with formidable gifts taking her place amongst the elite musicians of the world today.

Ana comes from the small town of Karlovac near Zagreb, Croatia and started playing guitar at the age of 5, and by 7 had given her first public performance. At the age of 11 she was performing internationally, and at 13 became the youngest student to attend the prestigious National Musical Academy in Zagreb where she studied with Professor Istvan Romer. Ana's reputation in Europe led to an invitation to study at the Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore, USA, with Manuel Barrueco.

Smartphone App TrickorTracker Removes Parents' Worries-Kids Can More Safely Enjoy Halloween

Iconosys unveils a new Smartphone app that enables responsible parents to know the exact whereabouts of their trick-or-treating kids without requiring them to follow alongside in the family car (risking the lives of others that may stray into their paths, as they are distracted by the task of diligently watching their children from the car window). 

Iconosys, Inc., has created TrickorTrackerso that parents can safely monitor their kids via their Smartphone, while their children are out and about gathering treats.  TrickorTracker is free of charge for Halloween (it does expire afterwards), or can be purchased for $9.99 thereafter for full lifetime coverage of family members.
