Krazy Night Out draws crowd

SALISBURY — Downtown sidewalks were crowded Friday night as people turned out for the annual Krazy Night Out.
Music echoed as several bands performed. A clown and face painting amused children. And visitors lined up for food.
The featured draw was from retailers, though, as several businesses offered “krazy” discounts on products an dservices.
Brandon Croghan from WKQC-FM came out to enjoy the festivities.
“We are having a fun time here tonight,” Croghan said. “We came out for the Krazy Night Out which benefits small, local businesses and the community. We are really happy to be here to lend a helping hand.”
Edward Brown was in attendance to help a young track star, Jaleesa Smoot, get to nationals in New Orleans.
“We are here selling cotton candy to raise money for Jaleesa here,” Brown said. “She can run the 100-yard-dash in 4.2 seconds, so she has a great chance down at nationals.”
First Baptist Church held a “Huge Indoor Yard Sale.” Coupons for a free bottle of water were handed out to entice shoppers.
Kasey Lester came with friends and said to be having an “awesome” time.
“My friends talked me into coming out, and I am glad I did,” Lester said. “I will definitely be coming back next year to listen to the independent artists.”
