The 2018 fall season of Rhythms on the River gets kicked off tonight at Townsquare at River Ranch in Lafayette.

The festivities begin at 5:30 pm with local favorite Strange Theories followed by the legendary regional band Louisiana's LeRoux at 7:30 pm.

As always, Rhythms on the River is a free event that's open to the public but there are few things to keep in mind before you head out.

For the safety of all Rhythms on the River patrons, please leave your pets at home. Ditto for the ice chests. Food and drinks will be available for purchase on-site provided by City Club, Romacelli and POUR.

Bring your chairs or blanket, your dancing shoes and party pants and we'll see you tonight!
