NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (CJ JACKSON, WTAT-TV) — There is fun you won’t want to miss tonight! FOX 24 is Rocking the River along with our friends at 95SX. DJ Sparkle stopped by the FOX 24 Morning News to talk about the exciting event.

CJ JACKSON: For someone who is not familiar with this event, what is it?

SPARKLE: Rockin’ the River is so much fun! It is a family friendly, pet friendly area up in North Charleston where the old Naval base used to be. Right on the riverfront and so beautiful. You can see the barges and ships coming in and tonight we are doing a Dave Matthews Band tribute.

So if you missed him, because he was here not too long ago, or if you love the band, come out. Again it’s family friendly, completely free. Except you want to bring a couple of dollars because you can buy drinks, food and snacks. All ages are welcome.

CJ JACKSON: Can you bring a cooler, can you bring alcohol, snacks?

SPARKLE: You can bring it all! You can bring lawn chair, anything to make you comfortable.

CJ JACKSON: So it’s not just tonight, but it is all through the month of August?

SPARKLE: Yes, so it’s every Thursday and my favorite band that is coming up is Journey Tribute, so excited about that. I’m an 80’s buff, but tonight will be Dave Matthew it’s going to be a lot of fun.

CJ JACKSON: What time does it get underway and do you recommend that people get you there early for a good spot?

SPARKLE: Gates open at 5:30pm, if you show up then you will be fine. It runs until about 9:30pm, depending on the bands, so you can come any time. You don’t have to show up at the beginning. It is rain or shine, if there’s lightning we will consider it. But we are party people at 95SX, so we will party rain or shine.

CJ JACKSON: What about parking?

SPARKLE: Parking is right there next to Riverfront Park. You might have to walk few feet depending on what time you get there. There are a few different lots.
