The Alex LeVasseur Memorial Skate and Music Festival—the third annual event hosted by songwriter Jeffrey Steele and his family—is set for Sunday, June 28 at Jim Warren Park in Franklin, Tenn. Proceeds will benefit the Alex LeVasseur Memorial Fund of The Community Foundation, and its scholarship program to motivate kids.
The free festival opens at 2 PM with a performance by Steele, who will also close out the bash ending at 9 PM. In between, American Bang, LoCash Cowboys, Ricky Young & Red White Blue, and Pearl Heart, will rock the stage. The event featuring skate demos, giveaways, games, food and an auction was created in loving memory of Steele’s late son Alex, an avid skater who died at age 13. www.rememberalex.com.
