Sunset Symphony to be held on the river

Memphis in May has announced that Sunset Symphony will remain Downtown, according to the Memphis Business Journal. It will happen Saturday, May 28. Crews will start setting up the stage on May 25, after work is done to clear the park from flood water and damage.

Compared to the madness of Music Fest and the debauchery of BBQ Fest, Sunset Symphony is a very chill event. Guests are allowed to bring in their own blankets and coolers (including alcohol), and Tom Lee Park becomes a gigantic picnic. The Bar-Kays and the Memphis Symphony Orchestra will entertain, and there will be fireworks after sunset. If you don’t feel like bringing your own food and beverages, you can purchase them at the park.

I want to remind everyone that by the time the first note is played at Sunset Symphony, Tube Top Month will have arrived. It begins at 5 PM Friday, May 27. So, let’s see those tube tops on the 28th!
