Who said there wasn't anything to do on a Sunday in Corpus Christi? There was plenty of entertainment on tap Sunday night.
There was a car show that had people heading to the American Bank Center parking lot to check out some cool rides, plus baseball and a big concert.
The Corpus Christi Hooks are making a big push toward the playoffs, and were hosting the Springfield Cardinals Sunday night, bringing in a good crowd for the Texas League matchup.
And just down the street, thousands of fans were heading inside Concrete Street Amphitheatre, where several rock bands were on stage as warm up acts for the headliner, Creed, who has sold over 40-million albums worldwide since forming in 1995. They are always a great draw at Concrete Street, and helped to make the sea district come alive.
"I think the industry is adapting more, being more entertaining," said Mark Schaberg, general manager of Concrete Street Amphitheatre. "You're seeing these groups starting to pair up with other bands and make it more of a value."
Concrete Street is expecting a busy fall with a couple of big shows to be announced over the next week or so. Schaberg said he has noticed more people showing up for events.
City sales-tax numbers lately have been between 15- to 18-percent better than last year's figures.
