Vendor booths featuring local artists, makers, and arts-related businesses and organizations will line the street.
Free face painting, inflatables, circus entertainment by Good Clean Fun, and hands-on art activities will be offered in the Kid’s Zone from 5:00-7:30pm. Comedy juggler & unicyclist Mark Lippard will be mingling in and out of the crowd offering a dazzling display of stunts.
The smooth, soulful sounds of The Zandrina Dunning Experience will fill the street from 5:00-6:30pm with songs by artists ranging from The Carpenters and The Beatles, to Adele and The Jacksons, all with a soul/funk twist. The band’s original compositions complement these covers, creating a vibe that will keep your body movin’ and groovin’. As the sun sets, the party soundtrack kicks into high gear.
From 7:00-9:00pm Swift Technique, Philly’s fiery funk extravaganza, will take the stage to perform their unique blend of funk, soul, rock, hip-hop, and relentless showmanship. Featuring the powerhouse vocal tandem of Chelsea ViaCava and Nik Greeley, bombastic horns, thunderous bass and drums, driving guitar and keys, and earth-shaking dance moves, the band’s live performances are unmatched in energy, musicianship, and pure feel-good fun.
Be sure to contribute to The Wishing Wall, a community art project led by local artist and musician Kris Manning, and grab a bite or a beverage from one of the many surrounding restaurants and bars.
It’s an art-filled evening of fun for the whole family!
