Alive and under the sun Concert series exposes upcoming artists, promotes community involvement

Sergio Garcia/THE RIDER GRAPHIC

The Sunset Live Outdoor Concert Series is held every second Saturday of the month and features performing and creative artists, food trucks, games, art and a natural environment that is pet friendly and suitable for all ages.

Held at the McAllen Convention Center Oval Park, this event offers a natural environment to enjoy free music and quality time with family, friends or alone. Lawn chairs, games and blankets are allowed.

Ileana de la Garza, a marketing junior with an entertainment concentration, said “the event is important because it enables the community to help local artists become more known and at the same time it allows their music to transcend.”

“Also, I think it’s a great event for families because it lets them break their routine and enjoy something different while spending time with each other and the community,” de la Garza said.

There will be different performances at different times; however, there is a tentative schedule available:

Sine Cura, 5 p.m.
–Radical, 5:45 p.m.
–Priscilla Orfanos, 6:25 p.m.
The Starlight Quartet, 7:05 p.m.
–Tim Gonzalez, 8 p.m.
–Maria D’Luz, 9:15 p.m.

Food trucks available during the event will include Candy House, Bobborinos Pizza, Maui Wowi, Chivos Tacos, Rolling With Cream and Taco Total. The entrance and the music are free, but there will also be a variety of things for sale at the Artisan Market.

The next event will take place from 5  to 10 p.m. Saturday and nearly 4,000 people are expected to attend.
