The live entertainment will once again be held at Bayfront Festival Park for "Rock The Bayfront." The bands are always a great way to celebrate the weekend and for the runners (that still have the leg strength after the marathon), this is a great way to cut loose and celebrate at the beautiful Bayfront Festival Park.
