Two nights left for Hidden Treasures
By SUE WATSON
A crowd of 400-plus and about 30 bikers turned out for the Hidden Treasures event at Blues Alley in Holly Springs last Thursday.
Musical entertainment was provided by Ralph Waller and the Tough Street Band, Robert Kimbrough Sr. and The Blues Connection, David Kimbrough, and Duwayne Burnside. Invited for next week is Country Boy Lil Wilson and the Countryettes, according to emcee Willie Wilkinson. Missing last week was Soul Finger, away for a gig in Florida. Wilkinson said he hopes to have Soul Finger back this Thursday night.
There are two more events in the Hidden Treasures program for the summer – Thursday, Sept. 23 and Sept. 30. Bikers arrive at 6:30 p.m. and the blues begins at 7:30 p.m.
Hidden Treasures is a promotional program organized by volunteers with Holly Springs Main Street Association, a highly successful venue that has emphasized the promotion of downtown, according to Judy Smith, executive director of the association.
“This has been a Main Street event that will end September 30,” she said.
There are two more evenings of blues and bikes in this season. The next event is a Halloween Harvest event scheduled for October 30 and will be built around activities supported by churches, sororities, the schools and gospel music. Stay tuned to more details during the month of October and plan to participate.
Smith said it is the volunteers - the musicians, bikers, technicians, the organizers, the police and fire workers - who have brought about the unprecedented success of Hidden Treasures. She said attention will be directed to other Main Street goals during the fall, connected with design in the downtown area. Five points the design committee wants to address will be rolled out in October/November.
