Sunday, October 21st, 1-5pm
…is the theme for the upcoming Arts on Sunday Festival on Trade Street (500-600 blocks).
Entertainment will be provided by the R.J. Reynolds High School Performing and Visual Arts groups.
This is always a fun, well attended event. R.J. Reynolds has a long tradition of excellence in art and music education, and the Arts District is the ideal venue to showcase their talents. The streets will be lined with artists, craftspeople, and other vendors, and many of the shops and galleries will be open. There will be a special kids’ craft area too.
Bring your friends, your family, and your dog. And don’t leave home without your wallet, as this is the perfect opportunity to do some holiday shopping. The weather forecast is most favorable, so plan for a fun afternoon.
The past Sunday featured some outstanding musical performances. Big Ron Hunter with Robby Carr started the day off with some of Ron’s classic blues tunes. They were followed by some of the finest Dixieland Jazz this side of New Orleans, as performed by a traveling U.S. Air Force musical ensemble called the Heritage Ramblers. A traditional bluegrass band finished off the afternoon. The Old Bunch of Keys Band featured 5-part vocal harmonies and kick-up-your-heels banjo picking that made some flatfooters very happy indeed.
