Summer Night Out is Friday

Downtown Salisbury is hosting Summer Night Out on Friday, Aug. 5, from 5-9 p.m.
Local favorites Gulley (formerly Chobey Badgio Band) will bring their signature sound to the new East Innes Street stage from 6-9 p.m. The group describes itself as “a Texas-style blues cocktail served on the rocks in a dirty glass.” With a combined 30 years of gigging experience, the band prefers its original material but can pull from its extensive roster of covers; www.gulleytheband.com
Gigi Dover & the Big Love will take the stage at The Blue Vine, Ang Medlin will perform at Tastebuds, and there will also be live music at the Bible Book Store.
For those in the mood for a play, Piedmont Players Theatre’s “Prisoner of Second Avenue” begins at 7:30 p.m. at the Meroney Theater. Tickets are $12 for adults, $10 for students/seniors; www.PiedmontPlayers.com
At the Visitors Center, 204 E. Innes St., listen to the music of Clifton from Melonbelly, learn about some of the critters from Dan Nicholas Park, board the Haunted Trolley (departing at 8 p.m.), or begin the tour of the Salisbury Sculpture Show, an outdoor sculpture exhibit featuring 14 pieces of art by sculptors from around the country (another two sculptures are installed at RCCC).
St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, 131 W. Council St., hosts an opening reception for “The Faith Experience,” a photography exhibit by award winning local photojournalist Sean Meyers. The reception, sponsored by Center for Faith & the Arts, is 6-8 p.m. in the parish hall.
Local car enthusiasts will display their classic cars in the Farmers Market lot on the corner of S. Main and E. Bank Streets.
The Downtown Ghost Walk will send a chill down your spine — the walks start at 7, 7:30 and 8:30 p.m. in front of the old Salisbury Post Office, 130 W. Innes St., at $10 for adults, $5 for students and under 5 are free; www.SalisburyGhostWalk.com .
There will be, as always, free trolley rides, and the trolley will make a stop at St. John’s Lutheran Church, 200 W. Innes St., which opens its sanctuary and chapel for free tours from 6-8 p.m.
There will be activities for the youngsters such as moon bounces, face painting, and Wacky Doo the Clown; a drum circle on Easy St. at 7 p.m.; and carriage rides. The state sales tax holiday begins Friday so downtown stores will be open late.
Summer Night Out is free, rain or shine. For more information, contact Downtown Salisbury, Inc. at 704-637-7814 or visit www.DowntownSalisburyNC.com .
