The city of Wausau is welcoming the return of summer with the first Concert on the Square. It was held Wednesday night.
It's a weekly event that's put on by Wausau Area Events and City Pages, sponsored by Marshfield Clinic. Every Wednesday from June 20th to August 22 (including July 4th) you can catch some free musical entertainment on the 400 Block in downtown Wausau. They start at 6 pm and usually run till 8 pm.
The concerts are completely free - so be sure to load up your cooler with your favorite summer drinks and munchies and grab your lawn chair and head on out to hear the sweet tunes. Each week the band is different. For a look at the scheduled performances, be sure to check out the list below.
