Edmond's Heard on Hurd returning for sixth season
EDMOND — In celebration of the St. Patrick’s Day holiday, the theme for Citizens Bank of Edmond’s return of Heard on Hurd will be "Go Green."
The first Heard on Hurd of the season will be from 6 to 10 p.m. Saturday at the corner of Broadway and Hurd in downtown Edmond.
Festival attendees can enjoy live, local music and a variety of food trucks and pop-up shops every third Saturday of the month from March through October.
“We can’t believe that our small-town festival launched in 2014 with only 10 food trucks is now in its sixth season and bringing over 25,000 attendees to downtown Edmond each event,” said Jill Castilla, Citizens Bank of Edmond president and CEO.
The season opening event will bring a diverse range of local talent to the main stage organized by Tower Theatre:
• Zunis at 6 p.m., an emerging Indie alternative band formed through the high school jazz program at Tulsa School of Arts & Sciences looking to take its sophomore release, “EARTH TO SELF EP,” on a national scale.
• BC & The Big Rigs at 7:20 p.m., an Americana/rock 'n' roll band that brings a wall of sound with powerful groovy riffs, screaming lead guitar and a slamming rhythm section.
• Jabee at 8:40 p.m., an east Oklahoma City native hip-hop artist whose rhymes have been recognized by Chuck D, of Public Enemy, and Sway Calloway, of Sway In The Morning. Jabee’s first album, "Everything Was Beautiful, and Nothing Hurt," debuted at No. 50 on iTunes charts.
The March event will feature more than 30 food truck vendors, shopping and locally brewed craft beer.
