The main street of St. Pauls will come alive with the sound of music—and muscle cars Saturday.
That is the purpose of the Night Out series, to draw people into town so they can check out and visit the downtown businesses, as well as to enjoy the great cruise-in, the music, the arts and crafts and each other’s company.
Some businesses will be closed by the time the fun begins at 5 p.m., but some, especially the downtown restaurants, will be open and booming.
You can now add Broad Street Cafe to the usual assortment of restaurants. Broad Street Cafe will now be open during Night Out events, and its owner says that participation will increase next month when special al fresco dining hits the sidewalk out front.
Among the other restaurants offering great food at great prices are Zachary’s, Tarpackers, El Rancho, Firehouse Wings, and Taqueria Popular.
While some businesses will be closed, those attending the Night Out will be able to visit those that are open and to window shop at those that aren’t.
Typically over a thousand people visit downtown St. Pauls during the Night Out parties, and a huge car and vehicle cruise-in is just another of the attractions.
This Saturday, DJ Donna and Kent Phillips will be set up at the Pavilion providing the musical accompaniment to the fun. Dancing is allowed and encouraged!
Among the vendors who will be lining Broad Street are Donnie Osborne selling birdhouses and whirligigs, Men’s Fellowship selling all kinds of barbeque, Saw Mill Bee Farm guys selling fresh local honey, area farmers selling fresh produce, the SP Presbyterian Church Youth Group selling “Tacos-In-A-Bag” and a drink for $5 as they raise money for an upcoming camp visit.
St. Pauls Medical Clinic won’t be selling anything, but will be providing free blood pressure checks near the Pavilion.
Saturday will be a rocking day all day long as the SPHS Band gets the day off to a clean start with a car wash and hot dog sale at Bo’s Food, which is also celebrating its 50th anniversary. The band kids will be there from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m. Bo’s will be sponsoring many free games and activities from 2 p.m. until 4:30 p.m. Win prizes and check out the specials inside the store where vendors will be sharing free samples.
There are many reasons to come to downtown St. Pauls Saturday, so be there for the fun and excitement.
