Moonlight and Roses features live jazz music, desserts and hors d'oeuvre, wine glasses, and the awards presentation all being held in the Memorial Rose Garden. Much of these items will be a part of the June 13 Summer Concert, with the major change being the venue; instead of being in the rose garden, everything will take place in Central Park.
Jazz music will be performed by the Dirty River Jazz Band. Wine tumblers will be available for purchase and there will be a complementary dessert - the Texas Main Street Cake. Rose arrangements will be used to decorate the stage with a raffle to win the arrangements to take home with you.
One new addition to the event is the sale of picnic baskets. As a small fundraiser for the Main Street Program and to assist with covering the costs of hosting the event, small picnic baskets will be available for purchase. The baskets will include a charcuterie board, two wine glass tumblers, chocolate-covered strawberries, and a rose. The baskets can be pre-ordered via Eventbrite.
The concert will begin at 7 pm and at 7:45 pm, Mayor Donna Dodgen will announce the recipients of the 2019 and 2020 downtown awards. Once the awards are presented, the band will take the stage and perform until 9 pm. Thank you to Carter Memorials for their generous donation of the awards.
