The 35th anniversary season of Downtown Alive! kicks off tonight at Parc International in Lafayette as Lane Mack & The Balladeers with special guests Sweet Cecilia will take the stage.

The party starts at 5pm as DTA! hosts Lafayette's Happiest Hour at Legends.

Music kicks off at 6pm with the all-female, award-winning family band, Sweet Cecilia. Lane Mack will follow, bringing his rootsy, bluesy, rock and roll country sound.

As always, DTA! is free to attend, but please leave your pets and ice chests at home as drink sales help fund the event.
