Downtown Salisbury tuning up for annual Pops at the Post concert set for Saturday

SALISBURY — Music will echo through downtown Salisbury when the annual Pops at the Post concert kicks off Saturday afternoon.

Events related to Pops at the Post start just after noon Saturday in parking lots adjacent to the Salisbury Post offices. The concert will last long after the sun sets. Activities will be focused around the section of Church Street between West Innes and East Fisher streets.

Vendors will be set up along Fisher Street by 4 p.m. The Salisbury Swing Band will perform from 5 to 7 p.m.

The Salisbury Symphony will perform starting at sundown, about 8 p.m. Former NASCAR driver Kyle Petty will be the symphony’s featured guest.

Luck is the theme for the 2017 Post at the Post concert.

The National Weather Service projects a high Saturday near 86 degrees with mostly sunny conditions. On Saturday evening, the forecast projects party cloudy conditions with a low around 63 degrees and calm wind.

If rain enters the forecast, the concert may be moved to Keppel Auditorium at Catawba College. A decision about that would be made by noon today.

Parking will be available throughout the downtown area. A limited number of handicapped parking spots will be available off Innes Street in the Salisbury Post courtyard.
