COURTESY PHOTO Fishermen’s Village in Punta Gorda COURTESY PHOTO Every Friday and Saturday night, the center court at Fishermen’s Village in Punta Gorda becomes a concert hall of sorts. Visitors and locals alike drop in to enjoy an eclectic line-up of music, from acoustic to jazz to country. With Gilchrist Park under renovation, the Guitar Army is also making its home there on Tuesday nights. While the free concerts are nothing new, the updated venue kicks the enjoyment factor up a notch. Previously, center court was in, well, a pit of sorts with a roof overhead. Music lovers now can listen under the stars with an unobstructed view of the water and the sunset.
