It is almost the weekend, almost summer, and school it out! Let the summer fun begin! In the above photo, three unidentified young men were providing a little impromptu entertainment at the June, First-Friday celebration. They were dancing at the beginning of the 500 block of South Elm Street, as people followed them taking photos. For First Friday, this section of South Elm Street was closed to vehicle traffic. The 500 block has seen so much growth in the last couple of years, beginning with the railroad tracks all the way to Lewis Street is probably the most vibrant side street downtown these days.
We hope you get out and enjoy the weekend and find a way to bring joy to others, just like the guys in the above photo. The scene evokes the 60's trio, Martha & the Vandellas and their signature single, Dancing in the Street. Let us know what you dream up for the weekend. Invite us, and we just may be able to join you!
