Downtown Alive! Returns to RiverEdge Park

Aurora's long popular, low cost Downtown Alive! concert series returns to RiverEdge Park in 2023 with two popular music acts, Too Hype Crew on Friday, June 30, and 7th heaven on Friday, July 7.

Too Hype Crew is a tribute to old school '80s, '90s, early '00s hip hop, featuring all live music from a six-piece band plus choreographed "Fly Girl" dancers, all packaged in a family friendly way.

7th heaven, a Chicagoland pop rock staple for 38 years, is best known for their signature "30 Songs in 30 Minutes" medley of hits from the '70s and '80s.

Both shows offer a budget-friendly way to end the work week, enjoying live music with friends and family on a warm summer night along the banks of the beautiful Fox River.
