The Farmer & Adele
The Farmer & Adele – led by Grace Adele and Keenan Wade – leads the pack of a new wave of musicians revitalizing western swing music. With a star-studded record, award nominations and their own morning radio show, The Farmer & Adele are a one-two punch of classic meets modern.
Mariachi Olimpico celebrates a quintessential element of Mexico’s rich cultural heritage: the musical genre of Mariachi. Come enjoy the unmistakable ensemble of trumpets, guitars and violins.
Erin McLendon & The HellCats
Erin McLendon is a walking, talking poster child for “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun.” She believes in love, magic, frolic and play, and she dreams BIG! Her childlike outlook on life is not only a quality that defines her quite nicely, it is the combination of her wit, wisdom and love for humanity that is equally endearing.
DJ Moe Bass
Beginning at 10 am, and then throughout the day, enjoy the music of DJ Moe Bass. Moe is a local favorite and will keep us dancing all day long.
Good Neighbor Parade
Every year, we invite members of neighborhood and community organizations, as well as Metro employees and elected officials, to join in our annual parade. This year, we are inviting health care workers and first responders to serve as our grand marshals. Free.
