Opening Bands Announced for FallsFest in Wichita Falls
We already knew that FallsFest was going out with a bang this year. For the final year of the festival, they are bringing in some big names to headline. Friday night, Clint Black will be closing it out and Saturday, local legends Bowling For Soup will play the last notes of the night.
Today we learned who will be opening up the shows each night. On Friday, the night will start off with the Erick Willis Band and then Uncle Lucius will take the stage. On Saturday, the night will start off with local band Miyagi before Green River Ordinance takes the stage.
Here's the full press release from Lindsay Greer, the FallsFest Publicity Chair:
The Junior League of Wichita Falls, along with our partners the City of Wichita Falls Parks & Recreation Department and Streams & Valleys, is excited to announce the opening acts for FallsFest 2015!
Friday, September 25 Main Stage:
Erick Willis Band
Saturday, September 26 Main Stage:
Green River Ordinance
Bowling for Soup
Both nights offer a full lineup of first-class musicians and entertainment. The FallsFest committee is excited to bring these quality opening and headline acts to the Wichita Falls community for the final year of FallsFest.
Since its inception, FallsFest has returned nearly $2 million to the Wichita Falls community. Aside from the benefit to countless local organizations through the years, proceeds have been used to help fund such community projects as River Bend Nature Center, the Wee-Chi-Tah Sculpture, Berend's Landing, and parks and green space development within the city. Each of these is a tangible example and daily testament to the power of dedicated volunteers-and a great idea.
The community can expect a stellar finale year of FallsFest with TWO DAYS of main stage headline entertainment, as well as all the FallsFest activities the community loves. Sporting events, Nuts & Bolts Motorcycle Run, Children’s Area, Rides, Games and of course, food, will all be back in 2015 to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Texoma’s Best Outdoor Festival.
We hope that the community will mark their calendars for September 25-26, 2015 for the 30th Annual FallsFest in Lucy Park!
