Bikers Night kicks off Thursday downtown
Holly Springs Main Street Association kicks off the second annual Bikers Night/Blues Alley summer music festival at North Center Street Thursday from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.
The event this week will be preceded by a Chamber of Commerce Business After Hours VIP cocktail party at Courtsquare Inn Bed and Breakfast on the veranda.
Admission for the VIP cocktail party is $10 with proceeds to benefit the chamber. Tickets are available from board members or at the Chamber at 148 East College Avenue. Space is limited to the first 50 people who buy tickets in advance or at the door. The VIP party kicks off at 5 p.m.
Afterward, everyone is invited to join the first night of free entertainment on North Center Street.
Bikers will line up on the north side of the courthouse with bands performing down North Center Street. Everyone is encouraged to bring lawn chairs to the occasion. The Blues Alley music is free to the public.
“Main Street encourages everyone to plan to come early and patronize all the businesses downtown before and during the event,” said Rebecca Bourgeois, executive director of Main Street. “We have lots of musicians interested in playing so you never know who you will see.”
The David House band is expected to open at about 6:30 p.m. and Duwayne Burnside will be returning for opening night.
Wayne Fiddis, station manager of Rust College WURC-FM 88.1, and Harold Moncrief have agreed to provide the audio again this year for the stage, she said. WKRA-FM 92.7 will be broadcasting on site and Danny “Little D” Lewis with WKRA will serve as emcee, she said.
Holly Springs Police Department will provide security and fire department personnel will partition the streets and provide first aid.
Fannie Lampley is serving as event coordinator this year, while Andy McMillon is the chairman of the board of directors of Main Street.
Come out and volunteer with the Main Street committee and help make Bikers Night and the Blues a success again this year.
