Tickets are still available for this one-of-a-kind event, with an electic mix of music, art and food, to benefit future projects of the organization Winnsboro Main Street is in planning for later this month.
"Hot August Night," featuring the rhythm-and-blues sounds of the popular Jackson, Miss.-based band, "BluzBoys," will be held Saturday, Aug. 22, from 7 until 10 p.m. at the old post office on 513 Prairie Street. The Bluzboys was one of the most popular bands featured at this year's Catfish Festival.
The art auction promises some unique offerings to fit in with the choice of location for the event, the former post office building.
Main Street Manager Kay LaFrance-Knight explained, "Our artists are painting regulation-size mailboxes, each a one-of-a-kind creation to be showcased in front of a residence; also, some of the artists are designing frame-able postage stamps depicting some of the history of the area. We're looking forward to showcasing these unique items and having our community come out and show their support for the Main Street projects."
Jimbo Stephens is also creating another one of his popular fountains for the art auction, which has proven to be one of the highlights of the evening.
LaFrance-Knight said, "As always, the area's stellar cooks will be preparing their specialties. The food alone makes it the best entertainment bargain around.
So the evening promises to be a real treat – perfect ingredients for a wonderful, relaxing summer evening. Casual dress is definitely in order!"
Tickets are available from the Main Street Office (435-3781), for $30 per person.
