200 Courthouse Square
Friday Night LIVE gets creative on June 14
Friday Night LIVE returns to the Historic Fayette County Courthouse lawn on Friday, June 14, for the second of a four-event series. After a huge success at the initial Friday Night LIVE event, Main Street Fayetteville is excited to announce the theme for this upcoming event will be “Create with Us.”
Featuring all sorts of art experiences, including sand art, rock painting, face painting, chalk art, and henna painting, Friday Night LIVE will be open 6-10 p.m. Artisans will also be demonstrating woodworking, pottery making, jewelry crafting and more.
On the courthouse grounds, there will be lemonade, cotton candy, local honey, boiled peanuts, coffee, beer, wine and gourmet dried apples. Rick’s Ribs food truck will be on hand, and, of course, participants are encouraged to try the restaurants around the Old Courthouse Square. DJ Rodney will provide musical entertainment.
“Our first Friday Night LIVE event was a lot of fun,” said Main Street Fayette Program Manager Joyce Waits. “It was fun seeing so many families out and to see kids dancing and having a good time with all of the glow-in-the-dark attractions. This upcoming Friday Night LIVE will be a lot of fun, too, especially with the Fayette County Chalk Art Festival taking place during our event.”
Waits noted that pre-registered Chalk Art Festival participants will be assigned a 4-foot by 4-foot space in the competition zone, while anyone else can walk up and pick a spot in the community area. Those wishing to participate in the chalk art completion may contact email@example.com.
“That will be an exciting addition to our event,” Waits said. “It’s amazing the creations that take shape right before your eyes.”
Waits noted that a few retailers on the Old Courthouse Square stayed open late during the previous Friday Night LIVE, and they were pleased at how many customers wandered over from the event into their stores.
“We hope that happens again this Friday,” Waits said. “Our shops on the Square are destinations in themselves, and we appreciate them accommodating our Friday Night LIVE attendees by staying open a bit later than normal.”
Something new for this event is the SNAZ (Special Needs Accommodation Zone) booth and RV, which will provide a place for those who need to relax and regroup as well as a diaper-changing station for all ages, clean areas to change feeding tubes, and a quiet and private breastfeeding area. SNAZ is provided by Southside Support, Inc.
The third and fourth Friday Night LIVE events have been scheduled for July 19 and August 16, and there are plenty of vendor and sponsor opportunities still available for both. Learn more by calling Joyce Waits at 770-719-4173 or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
