Celebrate St. Paddy's Night Out in downtown Salisbury Friday
Go green! Whether you are Irish or simply Irish at heart, you’re invited to celebrate St. Paddy’s Night Out in Downtown Salisbury this Friday, 5 to 9 p.m. This is a free event for the entire family. Come by Downtown Salisbury Inc.’s information booth on the Square, dressed in your Irish finery (or at least in green), and receive a gift from your friendly downtown merchants.
Downtown merchants will stay open late and will offer specials, refreshments and fun all over downtown. There will be activities for the kids like moonbounces and face painting and Wacky Doo the Clown, carriage rides, free trolley rides, and more.
And let’s not forget the music. Thistledown Tinkers will bring their unique Celtic sound to downtown Salisbury, 6:30-9 p.m. on Fisher Street. This seasoned musical duo “weaves traditional Scottish and Irish music with original creations while adding a southern swagger that sets the stage on fire.”
Also playing during St. Paddy’s Night Out: Gigi Dover and the Big Love at The Blue Vine, Marty Maney and Friends at Okey Dokey & Co. General Store, and the Pokey LaFarge Trio with warm-up one-man-band David Lamanno at the Looking Glass Artist Collective’s March Hare Music Festival.
Be sure to stop by the Area Fire Department Chili Cook-Off, sponsored by the Salisbury Fire Department. Participating fire departments include Salisbury, Locke, Granite Quarry, Faith, Spencer, and Bostian Heights (other departments may be included as well). A bowl of chili and drink cost only $3, with proceeds to benefit the Rowan County United Way’s Layoff Assistance Fund. The cook-off will take place on Fisher Street with judging at 6:30 p.m.
Downtown Salisbury Inc. invites people of all ages to come downtown and enjoy all the activities, extended shopping hours in the unique retail shops, and some of the finest dining available anywhere.
