Thousands of residents come out each year to locations along St. Joseph’s parkway system to soak up some sunshine, enjoy refreshments and listen to some great local and live music. The Parties on the Parkway concert series gives St. Joseph residents a chance to network with friends and co-workers after the workdays ends, all while enjoying the sounds of local bands and the beautiful, natural scenery of the Parkway system. Parties on the Parkway were held in May and June as well. It is presented by the St. Joseph Chamber of Commerce with the partnership of the City of St. Joseph. The presenting sponsor is Nodaway Valley Bank.
