The Parks and Recreation Department’s “Concerts by the River” series is returning this year and and began on Friday, June 18 at 7 p.m. in Louise Hays Park.

The event featured performances from The Flashbacks and The Tejano Pride Band. Concert goers are encouraged to bring their own lawn chairs, bug spray, and/or picnic blankets.

The second concert will take place on July 17, and will feature local artists Modal Mojo and the Mike Kasberg Jazz Trio. Come out and enjoy the live music and great company.

This is a great opportunity for the community to come out and enjoy good music and good food on a Friday night. To ensure that everyone stays cool in the summer heat Dandy Cones will be offering snow cones for purchase. In addition, Phil’s Bar-B-Q will be vending delicious food during the event.

Please remember that there is no glass allowed in the park, and smoking (including vaping and e-cigarettes) is prohibited in all city parks.
