Lake Charles -

"Downtown at Sundown" will wrap up its 15th season with City Heat on Friday and will be from 6:15 p.m. to 9 p.m.

City Heat is driven by local jazz legend Chester Daigle II on keyboards/bass, with DeWayne Simmons on vocals and James Bill on drums.

With City Heat's unique combinations and fusions of music styles such as rhythm and blues, jazz, and funk to yield a repertoire of cover songs, City Heat quickly became one of Southwest Louisiana's most popular bands. They have delivered a great night of entertainment, audience participation and long-lasting memories since 1995.  

Other entertainment and activities begin at 5:30 p.m. including food, art and merchandise vendors. Downtown at Sundown will take place within the 700-800 blocks of Ryan Street (between Division and Pujo Streets).

The two blocks will be closed to vehicle traffic and street parking in accordance with a special event ordinance. All cross streets will remain open for traffic. Surrounding parking lots will be open and available for parking cars.

If inclement weather prevails, the concerts will be held inside the Lake Charles Civic Center. Concert-goers are encouraged to bring their lawn chairs, however, no outside beverages or pets are allowed on site.

For more information, call at 337-491-9159 or visit www.CityOfLakeCharles.com.

    Our Tuesday is off to a hot start. There has been lots of sunshine with a few small showers early this morning. There is a cold front that will push into Southwest Louisiana today. This will slowly move into our direction. Therefore, until the front arrives, it will be very hot. It will likely feel like 100-108 degrees. There will also be a few showers along I-10 this afternoon. Overnight, it will be mostly cloudy. I do not expect any more rain. It will be very warm and muggy.
