The event will include live music performances, an extensive local art market each Friday, and food trucks and food booths from several locally-owned restaurants.
Closing out the season will be returning favorite The Flamethrowers on March 31st. Made up of a group of 20-somethings from Louisiana, The Flamethrowers have sold out venues across the Gulf Coast since 2005. The popular party rock band performs high energy cover songs from across the decades, and they have opened up for such acts as Candlebox and Sister Hazel. The band’s popularity has been steadily growing over the years, and their signature stage presence makes them a favorite act in the Lake Area. Swamp funk band Iceman Special and synth-pop band Wolfman Wonders will get the evening going.
Shiner beers returns to sponsor the closing night of this wildly popular concert series and will be raffling off a custom Shiner-branded Epiphone Les Paul guitar and amp at the concert! Raffle tickets will be available for purchase at each concert and the drawing will be held on the closing night of the series.
