Beatles fans from all around the world are coming out to Big Four Station Park in Jeffersonville.
The festival is now in its 18th consecutive year, its third in Jeffersonville. The event brings out 15,000 to 20,000 people over the Memorial Day weekend.
Right across the street from the busy festival, Parlour Pizza is getting ready for its busiest weekend of the year. Wednesday night, the popular spot welcomed Beatles fans from Liverpool and Germany.
During Abbey Road on the River, it will cost $5 to get into Parlour, but the business isn’t keeping the money. The proceeds from the cover charge each day will go toward a different charity, including the victims of Sunday’s deadly home explosion in Jeffersonville. And the $5 cover charge will earn guests a $5 coupon toward future use.
Giving back is something general manager Adam Greene said is important to everyone at Parlour.
“We love our regulars, we love our community,” he said. “I grew up across the river, and Jeffersonville has become so much bigger than it was when I was a kid, and it’s just really important to us to give back to the people we feed every day.”
Parlour also donated its proceeds from the weekend of Thunder Over Louisville in April, donating $2,500 to Southern Indiana Animal Rescue.
