BISBEE - Entertainment will have an outdoor flair this Saturday and in August, when the city will host dancing and music in front of the Copper Queen Library.
Canto Mestizo, an Agua Prieta band specializing in Latin music, will play on Oct. 7.
Admission to all events will be free, and there will be refreshments.
Suzanne Drum, city Parks and Recreation director, said the events are a way to give locals something special to do in the summertime and showcase local bands.
According to the city, Main Street will be closed on those Saturdays, from Subway Street to the Post Office starting at 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. for event setup and event activities.
Residents or tourists may not park in this area during that time.
The event started three years ago, and it was popular, Drum said.
Last year, the dances moved to the city park, but turnout was lower, so organizers decided to move it back to Main Street.
Drum said she has been talking with business owners in the area to keep their shops open later, and some have already agreed to do that.
The Oct. 7 will be held in conjunction with the Rotary's Wine Tasting & Taste of Bisbee event in City Park.
