Locust’s Summer Concert Series are free, live musical events held from April to September. For eight 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!
Thank you to the 2018 Featured Event Sponsors:
Food and craft vendors, churches and groups, who wish to participate in our Summer Concert Series, please email email@example.com.
Our movie nights come in two forms: Locust Family Movie Nights and the Locust City Cinema Party. The Family Movie nights are family-friendly events that typically feature an animated film (G or PG rated) and offer kid-friendly atmosphere. The Locust City Cinema Parties offer a date-night vibe, targeting a wider range of age-groups. The Cinema Party vendors include beer and wine and will feature blockbusters and classics (PG to R rated) popular among adults.
All of our Movie Nights/Cinema Parties are free 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, and usually host pre-show activities, so not all start times are the same. Check the City’s facebook page for details as the movie dates approach.
