Bryan City Council Receives Texas Reds Festival UpdateFeatured Stories, News Thursday, April 10th, 2014
The update was given by representatives of the Downtown Bryan Association (DBA), which is in charge for the first time.
The festival, which will be the last Saturday and Sunday in September, will cover less of downtown Bryan. The festival area will be reduced by six city blocks.
There will be no headline entertainment. Instead, there will be six stages of continuous entertainment from local and regional artists.
And there will be a faith based program Sunday morning at the Palace Theater.
There was no feedback from the council on a request to spend $127,000 to cover expenses that have to be paid in the next couple of months.
The DBA has also asked the city to provide fire and police coverage, electricity, ticket booths, a trailer for the grape stomp, barricades, and solid waste services.
