Crowd Flocks to Park for "Make Goebel Great" Concert

The effort to Make Goebel Great attracted a big crowd for its first event.

A grassroots effort to re-imagine what this important city green space could be is led by local children, parents, neighbors, and businesses. On Sunday night, the twin boys who started it all took the stage with their band, The Rocket Flys​, opening for popular local band The Turkeys as families and neighbors enjoyed picnics, beer, split the pot raffles, cornhole, bubbles, watching goats eat hillside brush, and cheering on the revitalization effort.

A pump track for bicyclists was also installed by Riding Forward as an example of a larger one the group hopes to place in the park.

On Sunday, Goebel Park was the scene of a joyous occasion taken in by children and adults alike.

All proceeds from the concert benefit the Make Goebel Great project.
