River Run Rocks Concert Series Presented by Bud Light featuring The New Orleans Suspects. Turn up the volume on the traditional après live-music scene. The free concert series has hosted headliners 10,000 Maniacs, Seven Mary Three and Robert Earl Keen. Set right in the River Run Village plaza, the series features plenty of food vendors and beverage carts, and prime seating on the decks of Wolf Rock, 9280' TapHouse, and Luigi's.
