Downtown Live started more than 10 years ago and has since become a tradition in the city.

Organizers say the event began as a brown bag lunch to celebrate the end of the work week. Now the event has gained statewide attention.

“We are actually up for an award we're a finalist in the Texas Downtown Association President Award, for best promotional event for 2017,” Main Street Coordinator Melida Heien says. “We are really proud of our event and what it's done for our community.”

Tonight, Cole Allen is hitting the Downtown Live Stage. Many people i spoke with consider Downtown Live to be a weekend starter, waiting all week to have some fun.
