TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - The Down on Main Summer Concert series kicks off today. The concert features several bands and it’s the first one after the coronavirus outbreak in 2020.
To stay safe and clear of the spread of the Coronavirus and the Delta Variant, Tupelo Program Associate, Dalton Russell said unvaccinated attendees are encouraged to follow the guidelines recommended by the Mississippi State Department of Health.
“We’re just hoping people come out and also abide by what the Mississippi Department of Health has issued,” said Russell. “Of course, we are recommending people who aren’t vaccinated to wear a mask.”
He said hand sanitizing stations will be placed throughout the venue and are located on light poles. Outdoor toilet facilities are available and cleaned.
“People can wash their hands if they need to and all of that good stuff,” he said.
Restaurants will be the way to go for food tonight. Russell says it will give businesses a boost in sales.
Russell said the concert brought in about 10,000 people in the past and they are looking for that number again this year.
