The American Legion Mall will once again host the Indiana Black Expo Summer Celebration Music Heritage Festival 1 on Friday July 14.
This year many of the roads surrounding the American Legion Mall will be closed starting at 6:00 p.m. and remain closed until 12:00 a.m. after the concert ends. The closures will only limit vehicular traffic around the Mall.
Attendance at the concert has grown over the years, resulting in the crowds spilling into Meridian and Pennsylvania Streets, commented Indiana State Police First Sergeant Mike Nichols. “These closures are necessary to provide an added level of protection to everyone attending the concert,” Nichols added.
Concertgoers wishing to drop people off near the venue on Pennsylvania or Meridian Streets will need to do this before 5:30 p.m.
The following Indianapolis streets will be closed on Friday, July 14th from 6:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m.
