The free outdoor concert series began in May with The Tyler Bridge Band, followed by the Everyday People Band in June. Each event has been attended by dozens of people enjoying the musical varieties from their lawn chairs and other vantage points.

Free toss games will be in Railroad Park near the stage for play, along with a few other fun things to help wrap up the summer sounds. While supplies last, attendees can get free Kona Ice snow cones, hair tinsel, face glitter and face painting. Kona Ice will be available until 8 p.m.
