4th Fridays are music centered community events held on the fourth Friday of each month (May-August) sponsored by B-Town Events. The event starts at 4:30pm with busker attractions leading up to the 7pm headlining band. The event presents an opportunity to gather with family, friends, and neighbors to eat, drink, and listen to music with our historic downtown depot as the backdrop. We have a variety of local Food Trucks and Beer/Wine vendors on-site every month! There are also activities for the kids to enjoy. The event is family oriented and fosters a fun environment for all age groups.
