CARTERSVILLE – The Cartersville Downtown Development Authority invites you to the August First Friday event, “Buy Fresh, Buy Local”. The event will take place on Friday, August 7th, and will be held in the Wall Street parking lots in downtown Cartersville.
This event will start at 5pm with free kids’ activities provided by Rhea Lana’s of Cartersville. Coconuts Ice Cream will be on site with their truck to keep everyone cool with ice cream and shave ice. Vendors from the Cartersville Farmer’s Market will be set up offering everything from fruits and vegetables to jams and jellies to arts and crafts. Free musical entertainment will be provided by The Owens Brothers who will be playing from 6-8pm.
“The Owens Brothers also played at our Tomato Festival that took place recently, and everyone loved them, so we’ve asked them to come back and play some more great tunes for us. Be sure to bring your lawn chairs and enjoy listening to great music,” says Special Events Coordinator Hollie Duncan. “This is such a great opportunity to support our local community, so make sure to stop by our downtown shops and restaurants, many of which will be open until 8pm or later. There is no cost for this fun event, and it is a wonderful opportunity to get out of the house with your family and enjoy Friday evening in Downtown Cartersville shopping, dining, and playing,” continued Duncan.
