   The news that Sixth Street and Avenue G around the Matagorda County Courthouse will close around 6 p.m. Friday, Jan. 26, for the Wolf Moon concert through the Wild Game and Wine Camofest Saturday evening was revealed during the Matagorda Convention and Visitor’s Bureau meeting Jan. 11.
   “The good news is that we got the approval to close the street from (Public Works Director) Barry Calhoun and the city police department,” said CVB director Heidi Martinez.
   “This allows us to bring a larger stage for musical acts at both events.”
   Martinez mentioned that the stage comes at a higher cost.
   “It’s one of those really nice stages with a roof over it and has really professional sound,” said Main Street Co-Director Pattie Odom while explaining the extra cost for the stage.
   “It’s going to cost the Wolf Moon $1,500 more dollars, but the total cost of the stage complete with lighting and everything is $3,000 and Camofest will pay half of that. It was a little more than we anticipated.”
   “We’ll just be more diligent in the future,” added Martinez.
