Patio series off to big start


The Anne Riggs Memorial Museum Summer Off the Patio Series began last Thursday with second time performers Jennings & Keller.

The Florida duo came back to give Fort Stockton some of their folk tunes.

The event takes months to plan, with Director Melba Montoya usually starting to plan in October.

“People really look forward to it,” she said.

The Grey Mule Saloon provides free wine for the event and different businesses come together to sponsor the event and provide food.

The event is held in the grassy area of the museum, where a stage is placed and seating is all around.

Guests can bring there own food and drinks to the free family event.

There are five more chances to catch a performance at the museum through the summer.
