Downtown Alive Continues

This week’s Fun Friday article is spotlighting the upcoming Downtown Alive! Concert series event.

If you had the opportunity to attend the last one, you know how much family fun is in store! In case you have not heard yet, Downtown Alive! is a free monthly concert series here in Sanford that will be taking place on the third Thursday of each month until October. This concert series is replacing what was previously known as “Function at the Junction”. The June concert will be Thursday, June 20, from 7pm-9pm on Steele Street in Downtown Sanford.

The feature performance for June’s concert will be Dr. Bacon! Dr. Bacon is a 7-piece Appalachian Funk Rock group, currently based in Asheville, NC. Dr. Bacon loves when their music gets the audience dancing! This will be a night of laughter, fun, and dancing for the whole family.

In addition to the concert, there will be food trucks and local breweries as well as all the favorite Downtown restaurants. These concerts are family-friendly and families are encouraged to bring lawn chairs to the event.

Here is what the lineup will look like for the rest of the summer:

  • June 20: Dr. Bacon, Appalachian funk rock band
  • July 18: Molly Stevens, folk and country singer/songwriter
  • August 15: Southern Voice with special guest Faith Bardill
  • September 19: Joe Hero, 90s rock cover band
  • October 17: Al Strong

We hope for a good turn out next week and hope that everyone has enjoyable weekends.
