Every second Saturday, 2pm-midnight, Hit the Bricks! Downtown Tyler will be bursting with entertainment, music, food, craft beer, history, tours, art, and more. Each event will offer something new and different, but rain or shine, cold or hot, Downtown Tyler will be the place to be on the second Saturday of every month!
