Revitalized downtown hosts DownTown Live!

May 17, 2019

Free shuttles to and from the site of DownTown Live! will begin at 4 p.m. on Friday, May 24 from Reynolds Middle School and Prosper High School, providing safe transportation and eliminating the need to find parking as the Town celebrates the revitalization of its downtown area.

The free DownTown Live! event begins at 4 p.m. with live entertainment, a children’s play area, food trucks, and beverages sold by The Gin and Silo Park.  The fun continues until 11:30 pm.

Stage performances kick off the afternoon with local talent from Texas Amps and Axes, followed by a Memorial Day Salute and entertainment by Philip Brumley and Cody Wayne.  Headliner Emerald City Band, renowned as “The Best Party Band in America!,” is set to take the stage at about 8:45 p.m.

“With nearly 40 merchants doing business in the downtown area, Prosper DownTown Live! presents the perfect opportunity to take a look around while enjoying some great music,” says Dudley Raymond, Director of Parks and Recreation.  “We’re thrilled to be producing this event to celebrate Prosper and the revitalization of the downtown community.”

Officials recommend party-goers arrive early by taking the free shuttles.  The event site has a limited attendance capacity and parking will be minimal to non-existent near the event.  Complimentary shuttles begin running at 4 p.m. from Reynolds Middle School, 700 N. Coleman Street, and Prosper High School, 301 Eagle Drive, and will run as long as needed to get attendees back to their cars.  Families can alleviate the traffic hassles by taking advantage of the free park and ride.

At each of the entry gates, bags may be searched.  All beverages must be purchased on-site.  Town officials suggest bringing folding lawn chairs, as event seating will be minimal.  For a complete list of prohibited and allowed items, please visit www.prosperdtlive.com.
