Just bring a lawn chair or a blanket, and enjoy the music.

"Yeah we'll be kicking it off tonight with T-Bone Pruitt, of course the weather might be a factor but we are going to still hold it,” Live at Five organizer Sarah Newton said. “We just ask everyone to bring some wet shoes and maybe an umbrella and just get ready to have a good time."

The event is free, and there will be food and beverages that can be purchased at the event.
