First Friday Festival offers music, fun

Posted

The weather was quite humid, but that didn’t stop a nice crowd from attending this month’s First Friday Festival. Maybe it was because the band January Noise brought some “coolness” to the event.

Friday’s event at the Bradley County Courthouse Square featured the Nashville-based band, and Cleveland’s own Monday Night Social, and those in attendance said they loved the sounds they heard from both bands.

The First Friday Festival, oddly enough, was the second festival of three planned events in downtown Cleveland.

The First Friday Festival is sponsored by Wacker Polysilicon’s Charleston plant.

The events are coordinated by MainStreet Cleveland and the Allied Arts Council of the Cleveland/Bradley Chamber of Commerce.

Along with the music, there was food, face painting, and bouncy houses for the kids.

“It was a fun evening at the festival, with great music and great food,” said MainStreet Cleveland’s executive director Sharon Marr. “We are looking forward now to our Aug. 4 festival with the Sullivan Band and Rob Alderman and the Unfortunate Return.”

We are very thankful to Wacker Charleston for sponsoring these events,” she added.

Along with the festival, attendees were able to go by the Back Alley Gallery between First and Second Streets and view local art.

The First Friday Festivals are held on the first Friday of the month in June, July and August.
