The Corpus Christi night sky is about to be lit up with the sights and sounds of the third annual Pops in the Park extravaganza, to be held at Whataburger Field on Saturday, Mar. 29.

The Corpus Christi Symphony Orchestra will return, under the direction of guest conductor Brendan Townsend, with this season's theme "Deep in the Heart of Texas," celebrating the traditions and culture of the Lone Star State.

The evening will kick off with a VIP and silent auction held on the the private suite level at 5:30 p.m. Gates will open to the general public at 6 p.m., with preconcert activities and entertainment on the concourse.

At 7:30 p.m., the Corpus Christi Symphony will perform, along with a synchronized light show by the Harbor Bridge. An explosive finale will then commence, with a fireworks display lighting up the sky.
