GALENA—Residents and visitors of all ages are invited to sit back and enjoy, or kick up their heels and dance, to the music of two bands at Galena’s “Spring Music on Main,” 5-10 p.m., Saturday, May 19, in Green Street Plaza at Commerce and Green streets.

The annual spring event is conducted by the Galena Area Chamber of Commerce and follows the Galena Triathlon and Duathlon, a challenging point-to-point sprint distance race held earlier in the day by the Galena/Jo Daviess County Convention & Visitors Bureau.

Admission to “Music on Main” is $5 for adults 21 and older, $3 for teens and young adults and free for kids 12 and younger.

Folk, country and contemporary bluegrass will begin the musical lineup at 5 p.m., courtesy of The Wundos, whose unique instrumental variety and energetic vocal harmonies have earned them the nickname “King of the Party Bands.” From 7:30 to 10 p.m., Outta’ Control turns up the tempo with 1970s, ’80s and ’90s rock and roll.

The Chamber, along with the Dubuque Regional Humane Society, will serve brats, hot dogs, burgers, chips, pop, water and alcoholic beverages. LT Amusements will provide free entertainment for kids with face painting and a bounce house.

“’Music on Main’ offers great music, great food, great games and outdoor fun for all ages,” said Brian Schoenrock, event coordinator. “It’s just hard to beat that combination on a beautiful spring evening in Galena!”

Raffle tickets will be on sale throughout the event for three dining packages, each worth more than $300 at participating area restaurants. Tickets are $1 each or six for $5. Winners will be drawn late in the evening, and need not be present to win.
