The sound of music will once again be coming from the streets of downtown Yakima this summer.

City Economic Development Director Sean Hawkins says the downtown summer night concert series starts June 12 and continues through August 21.

In addition a new festival this year is planned for Front Street.

It’s set for June 14th on Front Street. We’ll hold a local brews and blues festival.

Concerts are also being planned at Performance Park next to the Yakima County courthouse.

There is a change this year, however. The Downtown Summer Nights concerts will be moved from 4th Street behind the Capitol Theatre to another downtown location that has not been finalized. They are considering many possibilities including in front of the Seasons Performance Hall.
