Sunset Concert Series finale still on for tonight
Chris Gill starts at 5:45 and Lisa Mills follows at Lakeshore Park

Tonight’s season finale of the Sunset Concert Series event will go on as scheduled, the Barnett Reservoir Foundation announced this morning. With diminishing rain chances forecast for the 5:45 start, the private non-profit group decided not to cancel.

Chris Gill, whose original concert on May 4 was postponed due to heavy thunderstorms, will start with his music that has made him one of the most popular local acts.

Hattiesburg native Lisa Mills, who now lives in Mobile, will close the night and the 2017 spring season.

“The combination of these two talents provides the perfect close to our first season,” said Foundation spokesman Bobby Cleveland. “We’ve had a great series, and have provided reservoir residents and visitors not only with great tunes but also a neighborhood feeling.”

Series sponsor The Crawfish King of Flowood will sell crawfish and shrimp dinners and the Foundation will sell beverages and hot dogs. No outside food and beverages will be allowed.
Admission is minimal —just $5 a carload and free to cars that have Reservoir tags. Walk-ups and bike-ins pay just a $1.
