Summerville DREAM (Downtown Restoration Enhancement and Management) and downtown merchants invite you to put your clogging shoes on and do some flatfooting, foot-stomping, buck dancing and jigging all through the town this Thursday, May 16th from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
“We have local music groups on tap all around downtown.” says DREAM Interim Executive Director, Jan Hursey. “In Hutchinson Square, the Sunday Summerville Jammers will host an open jam session. Bring your instrument and a chair and join the fun. Everyone is welcome. This will begin at 5 p.m.”
Do the West Richardson stroll and listen to the Harmonators in the Courtyard at Vintage Swag, a little further down the street it will be Eagle Creek behind Guerin’s and then make your way to Town Hall to hear 17-S Bluegrass. Get to Town Hall by 6:30 p.m. for a very special event. The first sculpture of the new Summerville B.I.R.D.S. project will be unveiled by the Mayor. B.I.R.D.S. (Birds in Residence Downtown Summerville) is a collaborative effort by Sculpture in the South, the National Audubon Society and DREAM to install sculptures of birds naturally found in Summerville around the downtown area.
The Art Walk returns to Short Central, showcasing local arts and crafts vendors. Summerville’s favorite local band, Busker, will be keeping things lively as you shop and stroll on Short Central. DREAM members from outside the downtown area will have booths on Hutchinson Square and as always the downtown businesses and restaurants will be offering special deals and special meals.
Summerville DREAM sponsors the monthly celebration to create a lively community atmosphere and promote local businesses. The public is invited to come and spend the evening in downtown Summerville. This event is free to the public. DREAM expressed a special thank you to its Media Partners for their continued support of DREAM events: Wow/Knology, Summerville Journal Scene and Azalea Magazine.
