Bikers/Blues slated for Thursday downtown
Thursday’s Bikers Night in Blues Alley kicks off at 6 p.m. with the arrival of bikers.
Lightnin Malcolm and the Davide House Band are scheduled to play this week, according to Rebecca Bourgeois, executive director of Holly Springs Main Street.
Everyone is encouraged to come out and enjoy the music downtown on North Center Street, she said.
Bikers Night has been rained out a few times this season. If a late afternoon shower occurs, the public is encouraged to wait and see if the show will go on.
Food vendors are available on site, so those who are hungry or thirsty can find something to eat on the north side of the courthouse along the street side.
Bring lawn chairs to be comfortable or sit on the sidewalks and stairs. Come out and listen to the blues and watch the dancing in the street.
Bourgeois said Main Street is working on a surefire way of determining when and how to call a rainout.
If it is still raining at 7 p.m. the music will likely be cancelled at that time, she said.
