Get there early, live country music on the Pelham Street Stage starts at 4:00 pm, hosted by Country 89. Johnny & June Cash kick things off, followed by Wendy Lynn Snider’s Classic Country Show at 6 pm. Christine Filipowich takes you through your paces with an hour of line dancing from 8-9 pm when Elton Lammie takes the stage with a new country playlist to round out a great night of music.
If all that dancing, hooting and hollering leaves you hungry or thirsty, there’s lots of options for food and drink between all the vendors, restaurants, outdoor patios and the Summerfest Beer & Wine Garden under “the Arches”. Maybe a little retail therapy is in order too, as you browse through the vendors stalls.
Friday is also Teen Night in Peace Park with local band, Revive the Rose, playing at 7 pm. Stick around to watch Star Wars – The Force Awakens on the giant inflatable movie screen at dusk.
