Locust’s Summer Concert Series are free, live musical events held from April to September. For seven years, the community of Locust and surrounding areas have enjoyed the Concert Series in Locust’s nostalgic Town Center. Concert nights feature bands from different genres including country, beach music, bluegrass, folk, and today’s popular hits. The 2.5 acre lawn in the back yard of the Locust City Hall is the perfect venue for our Summer Concert Series. We always close our concert finale with a fireworks show! You won’t want to miss it!
Food and craft vendors, churches and groups, who wish to participate in our Summer Concert Series, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Locust’s Movie Nights are free, family friendly events open to the public. Movies are shown on a large inflatable screen in the ‘back yard’ of Locust’s City Hall. All movies start at sundown, so not all start times are the same. Check the City’s facebook page for details as the movie dates approach.
