After roughly a year-long hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Mansfield’s The LOT Downtown will kick off its 2021 season this month “under the big top” when it presents acts from the Lone Star Circus. The show begins at 7 p.m. on June 5 at the popular outdoor venue, located at 110 S. Main St.
As soon as attendees arrive, they will be able to smell the popcorn, feel the applause and experience all manner of “oohs” and “ahhs” as they witness a show that only Lone Star Circus can provide.
The performance will feature twist contortionists, electrifying juggling, graceful aerobatics and more. This event is a special kickoff FUNdraising event for The LOT Downtown’s 2021 season, so while tickets are free, attendees are encouraged to donate at the venue to help fund future entertainment for the residents of Mansfield and the North Texas area.
The Lone Star Circus performance is one of three entertaining activities on tap this month at The LOT Downtown. At 5 p.m. on June 11, there will be 2021’s first “Nite Flix Movie Night, featuring a presentation of the movie “Sing,” an animated film voiced by Reese Witherspoon, Seth McFarlane and Scarlett Johansson (among others). Visitors are encouraged to bring your blankets and chairs – and, even, to make a night of it by visiting nearby Downtown Mansfield’s restaurants prior to the show.
Finally, on June 12-13, The LOT Downtown will present the Downtown Jazz & Blues Festival, featuring the smooth sounds of Michael Lee, Retrophonics and Kirk Thurmond under the big sky. The festival will begin at 6:30 p.m. on June 12 and conclude at 10:30 p.m. on June 13.
