Every Friday from May 6  to May 27 from 12:00 pm to 1:15 pm will feature a different local act. These concerts are free to attend, a lawn chair or blanket and bring your lunch to the First Mid Illinois Bank Plaza between 6th and 7th Streets on Maine. No worries if you forget your lunch, there will be a food truck on-site at every concert for you to buy something to eat.

The first show on May 6 features Dave Shaffer, followed by Cori Powell-Green on May 13, Hannan Mahon on May 20, with Jacqueline Kaufman closing the run out on May 27. Hopefully, we will have some great weather on those days so we call can get out of the office and enjoy some local eats, and local music from some of these great musicians. All concerts will be weather-permitting so fingers-cross we get all of the rain done with now so we can enjoy some good sunshine later.

Maybe you can ask your boss for an extended lunch hour so you can watch the whole performance before you head back to work. For more information, you can follow The District's Facebook page, check out the events page, or visit their website.
