Guide to The 2010 Skeleton Park Music Festival

Skeleton Park Music Festival, SPMFThe Skeleton Park Music Festival officially kicks off tomorrow night, with three consecutive evenings of fantastic entertainment prior to the main event this Saturday in McBurney Park.  Due to the popularity of last year’s festival guide received, we thought that it would be beneficial to outline SKMP 2010, specifically the schedule, venues and musicians.  So get ready to go barefoot in the park, and enjoy Kingstonist’s guide to the 5th annual Skeleton Park Music Fest!
