The weekend's Festival of the Full Moon will feature the BQ Ocean Blu band playing on Friday and Saturday from 11 am – 3 pm. This hometown group (recently signed with a Nashville label) will play various rock, pop, country, and blues favorites and their originals. They'll be accepting donations for Great Plains SPCA Pet Adoption Center. Look for their beloved standard poodle "Bubbles," to greet other four-legged friends with water and doggie treats.
"Bring a folding chair, or plan a picnic, sitting under the bridge while enjoying the band. Connecting to what matters by slowing down and enjoying the 'good times' with close friends, family, and fur babies. We'll have food truck options, and various cafés in the district will also be open for those wanting food and drinks," said Amber Arnett-Bequeaith, West Bottoms Entertainment District spokesperson, aka Queen of the West Bottoms. "Plus, the stores have various sales in place for vintage, antiques, apparel, and furniture."
Hatch and Home is opening in the district - offering interior design and event space.
Festival of the Full Moon is a celebration each First Friday weekend outside during First Friday Weekend.
