Concerts on the Creek will present the Ryle Holler Boys this Friday, May 31 at 7:30 p.m. at the Bridge Park outdoor venue in downtown Sylva.

“I am excited for the concerts to start back this year,” said WCU student Lindsey Collier. “I went several times last summer and enjoyed it. I met a lot of great people and look forward to seeing them again this year.”

Concerts on the Creek is a collaboration between the town of Sylva and the Jackson County Chamber of Commerce & Tourism Authority, presenting a series of summer concerts every Friday night until Labor Day weekend. All concerts are free and open to the public.

“We recommend you come early and take a leisurely stroll through downtown Sylva before the concert. You’ll get the best parking this way, plus have time for a bite to eat or some shopping before the concert starts,” said a Sylva representative on the Concerts on the Creek Facebook page.

“It’s always something fun for the locals to do on Friday nights,” said Carolyn DeCourt, a Dillsboro native. “The bands are always awesome and it’s a great way to kick off the weekend with friends.”
