The Bacon Brothers, Kevin and Michael, will bring their musical talents to the Union Transfer on Spring Garden Street February 4th for a concert. Hopes are to raise money for creation of phase one of a 3 mile park. This would be a quarter mile stretch turning a viaduct just north of the terminal market into open space. “The proceeds of this concert will be split towards capital construction funds as well as stewardship funds,” Michael Garden, a spokesman for Friends of the Rail Fund, told KYW Newsradio.
The group is partnering with the Center City District to make this happen as soon as next year, depending in large part on getting a grant from Harrisburg. They’re also looking for corporate sponsorship of the concert.READ MORE: Court To Decide If Pennsylvania Schools' Mask Order Is Legal
