The city of Waco does a great job with its Brazos Nights concerts.
The first Friday in April, May and June the city provides a free concert in Indian Spring Park.
Brazos Nights culminates on July 4 with the big Independence Day celebration at Touchdown Alley near McLane Stadium. Fireworks are shot above the Brazos River after sunset while the Waco Community Band plays patriotic music.
Local country artist Wade Bowen has his annual benefit concert in Indian Spring Park in early June.
The cities of Hewitt and Woodway each offer a midweek summer concert series. Hewitt concerts are at the new Creekside Amphitheater in Warren Park and Woodway has its performances at the Carleen Bright Arboretum.
