Hundreds Attend Festival On The Square

The streets of downtown Tyler were filled Saturday with tents, music and activities for all ages for the 19th annual Festival on the Square.   The event is put on by Main Street Tyler to bring people downtown.

Earlier in the day families came out to enjoy some rock climbing, slides and arts and crafts. There was also a volleyball tournament. In the evening, five well known Texas Bands performed.

"We decided that we really wanted to promote a niche, and we with the Main Street program in downtown development, we are all about heritage, and what's more appropriate then Texas music for a Texas concert," said Main Street Tyler Executive Director Beverly Abell.  

Some of those well known singers are Billy Joe Shaver, Wade Brown and Reckless Kelly.
