AMARILLO, Texas (KAMR/KCIT) — Center City of Amarillo will begin their 26th season of “High Noon on the Square,” which is a free weekly entertainment series on the historic Potter County Courthouse lawn today, June 2, according to a press release from Center City.
The free concert series will begin at noon today with hamburgers from the Coors Cowboy Club and a performance from Ed Montana, the release stated.
Beth Duke, Center City executive director, described the experience and the mission of High Noon.
“High Noon is a great way for people to experience a great outdoor concert with the background of historic Amarillo. This is one way that Center City meets its mission of bringing people downtown. We are proud that High Noon is a tradition in downtown. Sadly, we had to cancel the 2020 season, but we are proud to come back this year,”
The release said that at “High Noon,” lunch is available for $8 and the music is free while the City of Amarillo will give free popsicles to people in attendance. Guests are encouraged to bring a chair or blanket for seating.
“We have so many partners who make High Noon a success. Potter County allows us to use the beautiful courthouse lawn. The musicians donate their time. Local caterers work with us on the menu price. This year, several businesses have agreed to sponsor a High Noon event,” Duke said.
“The performers and the menu change every week. From country to jazz, we have something for everyone. The musicians and performers volunteer their time for the free entertainment,” said Duke. “This is one more way we can bring people to Center City so they can see all the great things that are happening.”
