It may have been cold Thursday afternoon, but that didn't stop a few local musicians from setting up on an outdoor stage.
Greg Tivis and Kelsey Taylor, the A&M Consolidated High School Choir, and Victory One Band performed at the Palace Theater as part of "Noon Tunes", a free entertainment event put on by the Downtown Bryan Development Association.
The event was the first of three in the month of December, which executive director Cindy Peaslee said they are hoping to carry on into the spring.
"Noon Tunes" occurs every Thursday, from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. at the outdoor venue located on Main Street, and audience members are welcome to bring food or drink into the theater.
The Downtown Bryan Development Association has also partnered up with some restaurants in or near downtown, to offer special lunch deals for those heading to or coming from the event.
