Bruce Appreciation Concert hopes to jump start economy
BRUCE, Wis. (WEAU) - One local community is hoping to kick start their economy with some live music this weekend. The community of Bruce is hosting an event on Saturday that it says will help their community get back into action.
There is some controversy with the event, but live music is going to be back in Bruce on Saturday.
Three bands will be playing including South of 8, 2/3 of the Lincoln Boys and Chris Kroeze. The Bruce firefighters will be doing a fireworks show. There will also be a craft fair, car show and all local businesses along Main Street will be open for sales.
Admission to the event is only $1 but additional donations are welcome. 100 percent of the proceeds are going to back pack blessings with Bruce public schools which will get groceries to families that need it most.
“Doing little events like this in small communities does a lot, it brings in other people from outside communities and they spend money in your towns, you have musicians that you are supporting and just having these events in your downtown area is where it benefits the community and where they can have that opportunity to work together,” said organizer Jon Fields.
The event starts at 10 a.m. and the live music starts at 4 p.m. on Saturday and runs until midnight on Main Street in downtown Bruce. Organizers say they have enough space to make sure people can keep 6 feet distance and there will be hand sanitizing stations. Wear a mask if you plan to go. Organizers say if you are at all nervous to attend then just stay home.
