Denison wraps up Music on Main summer concert series
DENISON, Texas (KXII) -
Denison’s Music on Main summer concert series wrapped up tonight and people from around Texoma showed up to rock out one last time.
Despite two cancelled performances, a change of venue and the global Coronavirus pandemic the city still found a way to keep this two decade old tradition going strong.
The concert series was pushed back because of restrictions on large gatherings by the state.
Shows were cancelled for the first week and organizers pushed back acts for weeks two and three for July 3rd and August 7th.
The schedule wasn’t the only change.
Music on Main also moved from Heritage Park over to Forest Park to allow for more room for social distancing, and to allow the show to go on.
“I think it’s huge, not only for the musicians but all the people that are involved in the show that go unpraised that you don’t know about,” said Jason Smith, who’s company Overdrive Entertainment puts on the concert every year. “There’s different city workers, different stage hands and lighting and sound companies.”
Fans were willing to brace the heat for final performances by the band Hill Country and Connor Harris.
“It’s really a great way to just get out and have a good time on the weekend,” said Phillip Watkins, a fan in attendance.
For others, the summer concerts are the perfect excuse to reconnect.
“Since social distancing we haven’t seen a lot of the people that we normally do but we sort of hang out here and enjoy being together,” said Kelly White.
