Ready for a Night in the Tropics?

New Port Richey will have a little extra island flair this Friday in addition to all the great live music around town.

Downtown New Port Richey is feeling the heat this weekend, but in a good way.

is putting on their annual Night in the Tropics festival this Friday, August 19th. Instead of being on Main Street--as it had been in the past--the festivities will take place on Grand Blvd. It runs from 5 p.m.-11 p.m., but be aware that the city will be closing traffic on Grand Blvd. between Circle St. and Montana St. just about all day Friday. For more info, for Patch's article about the festival or visit http://www.nprmainstreet.com. For more info on the live music at the festival, look under "Night in the Tropics" in Friday's listings below.

Of course, there's no shortage of live music in addition to the Night in the Tropics festival. Here's what's in store for August 19-25. As always, if you have any additions or corrections you want to see on this list, you are welcome to contact me at tcronin82@gmail.com.

Have fun out there!
