People filled the city plaza in downtown Chico Friday night to enjoy the return of Chico’s Friday Night Concerts.

For the 41st year, free shows with live music will be put on by the Downtown Chico Business Association in the city plaza every Friday night throughout the summer.

The shows start at 7 p.m. in the evening and end at 8:30 p.m. Friday’s show was Cinco De Mayo-themed and featured a live performance by The Fritz, a local Chico band.

The concerts will last until September 7 and feature performances by different bands every week.
