'Hit the Bricks' returns to the red brick streets of downtown Tyler on Saturday, July 13. In case you're hearing about this for the first time, 'Hit the Bricks' happens every second Saturday and no matter the month, there's always much fun of all kinds to had by adults and kids alike. However, each month usually offers some kind of special twist each month.

This upcoming 'Hit the Bricks' features an Auto and Cycle Show. Bring friends or just your self and make new friends. Bring the camera if you want and check out and take pics of some of the coolest cars you'll find around East Texas. When you get hungry be sure and grab a quick bite at one of the food trucks around the square or have a sit down lunch or dinner at one of the various downtown restaurants--there's lots of options--whatever you're in the mood for, you're likely to find it.

Typically, the day's activities start around 10 a.m., BUT NOW that the Rose City Farmers' Market is back, AND Cafe 1948 will be there with their delightful offerings, you can start as early as 7 a.m. The RCFM opens at 8 a.m., so come early to get a jump start on all of the locally-made and delicious offerings.  Activities continue throughout the day (and night). Enjoy free parking in the parking garage and on the square itself, of course. No charge on the weekends, yo. If the weather's nice, take a ride on the open-air shuttle sponsored by Tyler Innovation Pipeline. There's a range of activities to check out, restaurants to enjoy, and a live music feast for your ears.

Full schedule on the way (if it's not out already) on their Facebook page.

Hope to see you there! Also, don't forget to wear sunscreen--cuz wow it's hot.
