Live at the Lakefront draws quite a crowd

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

The free concert series, "Live at the Lakefront" kicked off Friday evening at the Lake Charles Civic Center Amphitheatre.

It's held on three consecutive Fridays; the first, on St. Patrick's Day, drew a large crowd

"We've come pretty much every time for the past three years," said attendee Elizabeth Little.

Mary Barnes added, "It's something to get us out to do."

"I just love coming out here, I love seeing all the new bands, seeing what local Lake Charles has to offer. I feel like you get the really authentic feel of what Lake Charles is," said Katelyn Delia.

The concert series takes place on Fridays drawing in people of all ages. 

"We like to come because it's something the whole family can do together," said Little.

While there were no Irish tunes there, three bands took the stage over a four-hour span, playing a variety of music.

The event also serves as a fundraiser - with all beverage sales benefiting the Arts Council of Southwest Louisiana.

Local artists also got a chance to showcase their work in the art market, next to long lines waiting on several local food trucks. 

With great weather on their side, the first concert of the season proved a success. It's an event now going six years strong.

Brittany Pfantz, Tsora, and Tank and the Bangas all performed.

In addition, $1 raffle tickets will be available at each concert, for a chance to win a custom Shiner-branded Epiphone Les Paul guitar and amp at the March 31st concert.
