Final Ida Cox Music Series Show Saturday

Toccoa Main Street will wrap up its 2nd annual Ida Cox Music Series with one final show this weekend.

The free outdoor concerts have taken place throughout June and July in downtown Toccoa.

According to Toccoa Main Street Events Coordinator Sharon Crosby, this year’s series has been quite successful.

Crosby said they have been encouraged by the attendance for the different shows.

“One week we had to move it to the SchaeferCenter and one week we had to cancel it because of rain, but other than that we have had a very good turnout,” said Crosby.  “We have been very, very encouraged with the support.”

This year’s final show will take place Saturday night from 7 to 10 p.m. on Doyle Street in downtown Toccoa.

Crosby said that the featured band is called One Seventy-Six and consists of many members of a group called the Velvet Truckstop that has appeared previously in Toccoa.

“They play rock, but many people will remember them from last year,” said Crosby.  “They were a very popular group, so we are glad to welcome them back again this year.”

The concert is free for the public to attend.

In case of bad weather, the concert will be moved inside to the SchaeferCenter at the corner of Broad and Doyle streets in downtown Toccoa.

Prior to the concert, Main Street Toccoa will put on another movie in the SchaeferCenter.

Saturday’s movie will be 1939’s “The Wizard of Oz.”

Crosby said they are excited to show such a classic movie.

“It is a very popular movie,” said Crosby.  “A lot of people have not seen it on the big screen.  They have seen it maybe on TV.”

The start time for the movie will be 3 p.m.

Admission to the movie is $3 for those over the age of 12 and free for those under 12.  Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult.
