City to bring Resaca City Music & Arts Showcase

SAN BENITO — This week, city officials plan to bring some art to the city.

The debut of the Resaca City Music & Arts Showcase will be held here on Friday.

The event will feature live music and a variety of arts and crafts, as well as food from food truck vendors.

Sponsored by the San Benito Parks and Recreation Department, seven bands will perform rock, Latin rock, Tejano/conjunto, hip hop and Norteño music.

Artisans, including a live glass blower, will feature their merchandise at Heavin Memorial Park and Amphitheater, 705 N. Bowie Street, starting at 6 p.m.

Admission is free of charge to this family-oriented event.

“It will definitely be an experience,” said San Benito Parks and Recreation Director Art Garza.

“I wanted to revamp the Resaca Music Series and Tunes by the Trail with a new event. By providing this event, we intend to help our community experience new or relatively unknown artists or art forms that they are not accustomed to seeing.”

The musical lineup includes And The Hero Prevails, Havey Y Los Latinos, Relverie, Zack Shine, Matt Montalvo, TR3N and Grupo Bargas.

Garza encourages families to attend and enjoy a variety of hearty meals from food trucks, some lively tunes and a great atmosphere on the resaca waterfront.

“The city gladly brings this variety of great talent from around the Valley to unite our community with the power of music and beautiful art work from local vendors,” Garza said.
