Upcoming Events

Last Thursday I stopped in to say hello to Barry Cassidy. While there, I picked up a flyer highlighting events that are coming up in the next several months. Some of the highlights that have been mentioned previously include the Celtic Street Fair on May 10th, the Summer Music Series and BlobFest.

In addition to these, June's First Friday will kick off Dollar Days, a two day sale by downtown merchants. The sale runs from 10am-8pm on Friday, June 6th and then again from 10am-5pm on Saturday, June 7th.

Two weeks later, to celebrate the start of Summer, a Festival of Summer Solstice will be held downtown. Finally, on August 29th there will be a Marine Night.

In addition to all of these events, the summer months will feature the opening of several new restaurants in town as well as some new retail stores. Stay tuned for more information.

If you walk by the CDC offices, you'll see that the sign for the August Marine night is for our US Marines.
