Spring Night Out is Friday in downtown Salisbury

Mom is the focus for this Friday’s annual Spring Night Out. From 5-9 p.m. on May 6, the Friday before Mother’s Day, Downtown Salisbury Inc. hosts this free, family-friendly event which offers an eclectic mix of music and entertainment, art and trolley rides, and fun of all kinds for Mom and the entire family.
Stroll the sidewalks of Downtown and enjoy live R&B and dance music on Fisher Street by local favorites Divided by Four, who specialize in ballads, jazz and pop covering 80 years of music.
Other music downtown includes Brandon Sides and Derek Talbert at the Visitors Center, live music at A Little Sumthin’ Sumthin’, Grace 4 U at K-Dee’s Jewelers, Dianne Hoffman Band at The Blue Vine, live reggae at Culture Image Reggae Store, Mary Gillespie at Okey Dokey & Co, Ang Medlin at Tastebuds, and live Christian music at Bible Book Store.
Tour St. John’s Lutheran Church, 200 W. Innes St., from 6 until 8 p.m. It is on the trolley stop for Friday Night Out.
Check out the classic cars in the Farmers Market lot, or load the family onto the trolley for a free spin around town. See if you can find all 14 sculptures located around the heart of Salisbury in the annual Salisbury Sculpture Show.
Listen to the rhythms of the Drum Circle down on Easy Street, starting at 7:30 p.m. Register for the First Presbyterian TWAM (Teens With A Mission) Run. Taste fresh strawberries from Patterson Farm, or board the Haunted Trolley (8:00 p.m.), both at the Visitors Center.
Watch Salisbury’s own Glee-type performances by North Rowan High School Show Choir at Salisbury Square Antiques at 6:30 and 7:30 p.m. or hop aboard a horse drawn carriage for a unique view of historic downtown.
If you dare, stroll the popular Downtown Ghost Walk at 7 p.m., 8 p.m., or 8:30 p.m. The cost is $10 for adults, $5 for students and kids 5 and under are free. Meet on the steps of the old Salisbury Post Office, 130 W. Innes St. (Ticket sales are cash or check only.
