Gonzales Main Street Concert Series resumes Friday


Will it be on the square this week?

Gonzales Main Street continues its 13th annual Concert Series on Friday and Saturday, June 11 and 12 on Independence Square.

The opening week's concerts were moved to the J.B. Wells Expo Center due to adverse weather. 

There is no rain in the forecast this weekend, so the concert will be back downtown. 

Temperatures will be in the low 90s Friday and Saturday, cooling off to the low 70s after teh sun goes down.

The concert series is free to attend. Attendees are asked to bring a lawn chair to the concerts.

On Friday, June 11, Satellite will perform from 7-7:45 p.m. and from 8-10 p.m.

On Saturday, June 12, John Swatner performs from 4:30-6:30 p.m. and JC Rocks from 7-10 p.m.

The series will feature concerts each Friday and Saturday night through June 26, and then finish off with a bang on Sunday, July 4 with concert running from 2:30 to 9 p.m.

In addition to the performers, food vendors, shopping, arts and craft vendors, drinks, and games for adults and children will be available in the park and from the downtown businesses.
