The popular 'Down By The River' summer concert series is returning to Hannibal's YMen's Pavilion beginning Friday, May 9.

The Big Deal Band will rock the stage at 100 Center Street, with festivities beginning at 5pm. Food for the evening will be provided by Kerley's and Budweiser products will be available. Admission is just $5 with all proceeds going to the Hannibal YMen's Club to help with projects at the Hannibal YMCA. You must be 21 to enter.

The series is sponsored this year by Abel's, Fiddlesticks, Terrill Construction, Hannibal National Bank and Golden Eagle Distributing.

The band schedule for the rest of the summer includes Raised On Radio in June, The Cheeseburgers in July and Madd Hoss Jackson in August.
