The event is always on Thursdays and always free.
ROCKWALL Another season of free Thursday night concerts by the lake, sponsored by the city of Rockwall and presented by Rockwall Ford & Rockwall Dodge, will kick off from 7:30-9 p.m. May 9, when the Texas soul and blues Josh Weathers Band from Fort Worth appears at The Harbor dining and entertainment district.
The last Concert By the Lake will be August 8, with the Hunter Sullivan Big Band performing.
Regular favorites scheduled to play in 2012 include Tom Petty tribute band Petty Theft on June 13; Johnny Cash tribute band Walkin’ The Line on June 27; Texas Gulf Coast band Hanna’s Reef on July 18; and Bon Jovi tribute band Blaze of Glory on August 1.

The concert series has become so popular that an average of 3,000-5,000 people attend each week, according to the city’s Parks & Recreation department. Many of those who attend come from outside of the Rockwall area.
