‘Last Thursday’ provides pre-party festivities for Homecoming Pep Rally
By LPR Staff
The Lockhart Business Cooperative has finalized plans for October’s Last Thursday/Music on the Square event, which will be held on Oct. 30, 2008.
Special musical guests Peas and Hominy will be on hand from 5 – 6:30 p.m., providing free entertainment on the East Lawn of the Courthouse Square, while visitors are invi
ted to enjoy extended shopping hours at many of the Downtown Historic District’s retail stores.
After shopping and enjoying music and refreshments, visitors are invited to show their Lion Pride as they participate in Lockhart High School’s annual Homecoming Pep Rally, beginning at 7 p.m. on the West Lawn.
Music on the Square has been held each summer for the last six years, and Lockhart residents and visitors have embraced the opportunity to visit Historic Downtown Lockhart, shop, relax, enjoy live music and socialize in the shadows of the magnificently restored Caldwell County Courthouse.
This year, the Lockhart Business Cooperative renamed the event “Last Thursday” and consistently scheduled on the last Thursday of each month. During the events, shops in the Central Business Districts have opted to offer extended business hours and celebrate the event in various other ways, including offering in-store refreshments and other special promotions to encourage customers to Shop Lockhart First.
The event is co-sponsored each month by the Lockhart Business Cooperative, the City of Lockhart and the Lockhart Chamber of Commerce and Greater Caldwell County Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.
