    It Happens Rain or Shine

    We are certainly hoping and praying it won't be raining Saturday because the plan is to gather around Buffalo Springs Lake's Meadow Stage and dance to Element. Should it rain, we'll just be moving the concert across the street to The Cantina inside the Buffalo Springs Lake Amphitheater.

    Bring Insect Repellent

    It's been rainy on the South Plains lately and we are so thankful for that. But that does bring out the insects. Make sure you bring plenty of insect repellent so you can relax and enjoy the evening with getting bit, stung and otherwise annoyed.
