Friday is Holiday Night Out in Salisbury

Downtown Salisbury Inc. presents Holiday Night Out on Friday, Nov. 27, 5 to 9 p.m.
Santa and Mrs. Claus, as well as the Grinch, will make the first of their several downtown appearances during this free event. Stores will be open late for your Christmas shopping pleasure, and will be offering special goodies, too.
You can take a free trolley ride to your favorite downtown destination, or enjoy the sights from a horse-drawn carriage. Or simply take a moment to enjoy the seasonal sounds of the a capella quartet Victorian Voices and accordionist Bob Wilusz.
Live music around town includes Funk City Blues in front of Okey Dokey & Co., Ang Medlin at Tastebuds Coffee and Tea. Kelley and the Cowboys will take the stage at The Blue Vine from 9 p.m.-midnight Friday.

You can ride the trolley over to Rail Walk where the Looking Glass Artist Collective is hosting an opening reception for the member exhibit “Winter Perspectives” from 6-8 p.m. Also on display will be an exhibit of art y area high school students and photography by David Lamanno.
At Just The Thing, 103 N. Main St., the director of the Margaret C. Woodson Planetarium, Patsy Wilson and members of the Astronomical Society of Rowan County will be doing some sidewalk observations of the moon and planets.
