The Northside Rock ‘N Roll Carnival started at 2:30 pm today at Hoffner Park, but worry not if you missed the opening act, because the final band won’t take the stage until after midnight. Due to July 4th falling in the middle of the week, the music only lasts one day this year, which means fewer groups overall, but the folks running the show went out of their way to pack the event with a strong lineup that includes The Big Sleep (from NYC) at 11:00 and Pujol (from Nashville) at 12:20. I have a hunch that the crowds will grow as the temperature drops for this event, and nothing’s going to stop people from attending the July 4th parade taking place at noon. There’s also an all you can eat pancake breakfast at 9 in the morning on July 4th at North Presbyterian Church, located at 4222 Hamilton Avenue.
