“It’s fun for families and nice for college students to relax and be outside,” said Lady Macintosh, a student at Auburn.
The concerts so far have included local bands such as Crossroads Band, County Road 12 and Summer Breeze.
“Our band loved playing at this event, it was the perfect weather, atmosphere and everything,” said Will Mooty, lead singer of Summer Breeze,
Stewart said, the bands seem to have fun as they play and watch people within the community enjoy a relaxed evening on blankets and lawn chairs.
The final concert, with a performance by Satin Soul, will take place May 26.
