Rockin’ First Friday was a great time for all!

The Lucky Few (and our special guest star in tribute to the legendary rock band Kiss!) fired up the crowd for our annual Rockin’ First Friday event, what a great time for all! The Outdoor Concert Series continued on with classic rock tunes from the 1960’s to 90’s and everything in between. There was dancing on The Square, plenty of photo opportunities, one-evening only specials at the shops and restaurants, open studios and receptions at the local art galleries, and much more on August 4th. The SoMar Drummers continued the evening’s entertainment at The Wharf for the monthly audience participation Drum Circle from 8 pm on, it was great to see both locals and visitors alike joining us for an evening of live music and fun at Leonardtown’s Arts & Entertainment District and beyond.

A big thank you to our Platinum Level Sponsors (Marrick Homes, Quality Built Homes, and the Winegardner Motor Company) whose support makes these community events possible and also to our in-kind sponsors Big Larry’s Eatery and the Olde Town Pub.

Save the date to return on September 1st for ArtWalk, featuring an art contest hosted by St. Mary’s Arts Council and the local band Higher Standards.
