Local musicians honor late veteran through music fest to benefit CASA Red River

Local News

Although the week has just begun, it’s never too early to make weekend plans, and the three-day concert event helping those who serve the children in the Wichita Falls community who have been abused or neglected is coming up Friday through Sunday.

Larsonfest is in honor of Donald Larson, an Army veteran who passed away in April 2017. He was known for supporting the local music scene and giving back to the community, and that’s why local musicians put together a three-day event geared towards helping a local cause that was dear to Larson’s heart—CASA of Red River.

The 21-and-over-event will feature live music from more than 40 acts, including Clint Vines and the Hard Times, AA Bottom, Downtown Royalty and James Cook to name a few.

There will also be a car show, food trucks and a raffle.

The Saturday fun run is $15 for individuals and $25 for pairs, so grab a buddy and get ready to run.

Registration begins at noon and the kickstand is up at 1 p.m. The course will start at Eddie Hills Fun Cycles at 401 N. Scott Avenue.

Follow along with the incoming information over on the Larsonfest Facebook here.
