The final concert will start at 5:30 p.m. The Bucks will begin the show with Dyer County performing country hits from the 70s, 80s and 90s. This concert will also take place at Park Sans Souci.
“We could not be more grateful for how successful this Downtown Alive! season has been, especially after a two-year hiatus,” remarked Anita Begnaud, CEO of Downtown Lafayette and Downtown Development Authority.
“Our sponsors and the community have stood with and supported us in bringing back this nearly 40-year-old tradition.
If you love live music, Downtown Lafayette has more in store. Local Palooza will launch its second annual celebration Memorial Day weekend. A flag was raised at the city-parish hall on Thursday to honor this new tradition.
The celebration will include performances by Clay Cormier & The Highway Boys, Lil’ Nathan & The Zydeco Big Timers, Jeffrey Broussard & The Creole Cowboys, Lost Bayou Ramblers and many more.
