Summertime in Texas is like something out of a movie. Warm air envelops you like a familiar hug. Crickets chirping and girls giggling fill the air. The only things more dazzling than the twinkling stars dancing before you are your significant other’s eyes, staring into yours as you lounge on a picnic blanket on the lush grass. Make this simple paradise even better by adding some talented live music, delicious food and family-friendly fun – all of which is available at Vitruvian Nights Live inside Vitruvian Park every other Thursday from 7-9:30 p.m. The next event is this Thursday, June 27!
Vitruvian Nights Live is a fun, annual event that brings free live concerts to the community at the amphitheater inside Vitruvian Park. This year’s event started on June 13 with Limelight, an Emerald City party band, and will continue through August 8.
“Vitruvian Nights Live is a fantastic way to spend a Thursday evening!” said Jessica Zazzara, event coordinator for UDR. “When selecting the entertainment for these free family-friendly concerts, I wanted to feature a variety of bands spanning across various musical genres. I truly believe that it is all in the details; therefore, I put the same amount of thought into food trucks that compliment the band. Ultimately, the goal was for this summer concert series to appeal to most everyone’s palate and preference in music.”
This Thursday, check out Desperado (an Eagles tribute band), followed by The Molly Ringwalds (an ‘80s show band) on July 11, Bidi Bidi Banda (a Selena tribute band) on July 25 and Infinite Journey (a Journey tribute band) on August 8.
All of these events are kid and dog friendly, and all dogs must be on a leash. Feel free to bring your own cooler and picnic dinners to enjoy during the show, although no glass containers will be allowed.
Parking is free and available onsite at Vitruvian Park. In case of inclement weather (you know, rain, thunderstorms, hail – something we’ve seen a lot of lately), the event is subject to cancellation. Updates will be made available as needed online.
If you are looking for a magical summer evening with a date, friends or family, Vitruvian Nights Live is the place to be. Can’t wait to see you there!
