A long-standing Waco tradition is kicking off another year of free concerts starting Friday night.
Brazos Nights is starting its summer season with two musical performers. This tradition started back in the 1980’s.
Organizers say everyone is welcome to come out to Waco’s Indian Springs Park for free family fun. The music kicks off at 7:30 p.m. with blues artist Cedric Burnside followed by soul singer Booker T. Jones.
Gates open at 6:30 p.m. next to the Suspension Bridge downtown, but no tickets are required since this is a free event. There will also be food trucks – including the Dancing Bear Pub truck, Smokin’ Hot BBQ and Fat Boy’s Pizza.
You also can bring lawnchairs and blankets. The show will go on rain or shine.
“Right now it’s blue skies. The sun is shining and it’s just a great time to come to downtown if you haven’t been in a while. Of course, downtown is just bustling. But it’s really the scenery along the river. You can take a walk across the Suspension Bridge, down the Riverwalk – and even better yet, we’ve got some great musicians lined up for you tonight,” says Jonathan Cook, Waco Parks and Recreation Interim Director.
