Downtown Salisbury hosts St. Paddy's Night Out this Friday

March brings the return of Friday Nights Out, starting with St. Paddy’s Night Out 5-9 p.m. Friday in Downtown Salisbury.
The event will be held rain or shine.
St. Paddy’s Night Out features extended hours for downtown shops and plenty of activities for the children, including face painting, moonbounces and Wacky Doo the Clown.
Horse & Carriage Ltd. will be offering carriage rides around downtown, $5 for adults and $3 for children, with proceeds to benefit The Gateway Animal Awareness Project, a nonprofit animal rescue agency.
There will be free trolley rides and “Official Pub Sites” offering special beverages and refreshments. The Downtown folks say to be sure to wear green to receive your piece of “gold.”
Live Irish music will be provided by The Morris Family. They have been playing Irish and American music together for 14 years, ever since the youngest member, Jessica, was 5 years old. She now attends Wake Forest University and is a member of the campus comedy troupe, The Lilting Banshees.
Jessica plays violin, flute and pennywhistle. Jacob, her older brother, lives in Athens, Ga., and plays cello and guitar not only in the family band, but also in his multiple bands in the greater Athens area.
Joshua, the oldest brother, is a designer in an acoustical architecture firm in New York. He plays violin, mandolin, and guitar, and sings.
Their parents, Aaron and Debbie, live and work in the Triad area of North Carolina, so the family is a little spread out, but takes every opportunity to perform together. Aaron, guitarist, is a teacher and custom builds guitars and other stringed instruments. Debbie is a librarian and plays violin.
